Two weeks ago, future Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal retired from the NBA after 19 seasons. What came next was a big question. Well, in the immediate future, it looks like he has to deal with some weird stuff.

According to TMZ.com, Shaq is in the middle of a robbery, sex tape and kidnapping situation.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Ladell Rowles -- a member of the Main Street Mafia Crip Gang in L.A. who is friends with Shaq -- along with 6 other members went on a search and destroy mission in L.A. on February 11, 2008.  They believed a man named Robert Ross had the sex tape and they tried getting it back with the help of a gun or two.

According to the police report, the seven gang members met up with Ross at a convenience store -- Pink Dot -- on the Sunset Strip.  The men allegedly surrounded Ross' Rolls Royce Phantom with guns drawn, jumped into Ross' car and ordered him to drive to Rowles' house in South Central L.A.

Once there, Rowles allegedly pistol whipped Ross and demanded that he turn over the sex tape.  Ross said he would get the tape and bring it back to them.  The seven men then allegedly took Ross' Rolex, diamond chain and earrings, along with $15,000 in cash -- then let Ross go.

The seven men have been arrested and charged with robbery, kidnapping and other crimes. They are currently in the middle of a preliminary hearing and being held in jail.

We've learned LAPD detectives interviewed Shaq to determine what, if any, involvement he had in the alleged crimes.  When the case file went to the D.A. Shaq was not listed as a suspect.
As for the supposed sex tape, Ross claims Shaq brought women to Ross' home and had sex with them while he was married to ex-wife Shaunie. Reportedly, Ross told Shaq that a security camera had caught the action. However, Ross told police that the security footage automatically recycled and no longer exists.

TMZ contacted Shaq's representatives, but hasn't heard back yet.

Report: Alleged Shaq sex tape leads to kidnapping

Freedom doesn't come with the ability to send 7 gang members to kidnap someone at gun point to try and get anything back...  which is what the article is accusing him of here.  Of course - he is innocent until proven guilty.
Actually, read the article again.  At no point in time does it accuse Shaq of sending anyone anywhere.  In face, the article plainly states the opposite.

How do you know this group of individuals weren't trying to get the tape to sell it?  Think before you speak.

Shaq wants the tape back because, during some lewd actions, the girl asks "Shaq, how my ass taste?"  That's dirty.

It's called freedom. Something Shaq gets the liberty of enjoying as well.

As far as the "He's allowed to have friends" thing - trust me that no normal person would ever get a job as a police or sherriff if they have friends that are currently gang members - that's a fact.  He may still get a job "fighting crime" - but that will only be because of his celebrity status.
