I wonder if Shaq will not appear on Inside the NBA for a while till this is over.. personally I hope so as he was a pointless addition to the show anyways. Rather have C-Webb or even Rick Fox as the 4th dude if necessary.

Report: Shaquille O’Neal under police investigation for incident at TNT studios

Shaquille O’Neal has been a very public friend to law enforcement at every stop on his NBA career, but now the TNT analyst is finding himself on the wrong end of police attention.

Shaq is being investigated for a possible assault as part of an incident from March 19 at the TNT studios in Atlanta, reports WSB-TV in Atlanta after obtaining the police report.

Through his attorney Shaq has denied any wrongdoing.

Let’s get the disclaimer out there first — being investigated is very different from being charged with a crime. Someone has filed a complaint against O’Neal but the truth of what really happened is far from clear, that’s what police are trying to sort out. Here is the key parts from the WSB-TV report:

Channel 2’s Ryan Young obtained a police report detailing the incident, but so far, O’Neal has not been charged with anything…

“(The co-worker) alleged Shaquille O’Neal tackled him to the ground causing injury to his back while they were at work at Turner Studios,” said Sgt. Greg Lyon with the Atlanta Police Department….

No one ever called police that night. O’Neal has not been charged. But the police department is still doing an investigation….

O’Neal’s attorney, Dennis Roach, sent a statement about the incident saying, “This was nothing more than horseplay. No one intended for anyone to get injured.”

The victim’s attorney said that surgery was required for the injuries sustained. The intent of O’Neal in any incident very well may not matter.

At this point in any investigation it is wise to take everybody’s account with a grain of salt. Or a handful. And to question what everyone’s motivation may be.

It will be interesting to see how TNT handles this. Because the alleged incident took place on their property you can bet that the company’s lawyers will be all over this as well.

Sounds like Shaq may of been fooling around, and accidentally took it too far/may of harmed someone.

To me, it sounds like someone saw a chance to make some dough and is going for it.

^ I agree. Sounds like they were all joshing around. Like mom always used to say: "It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt." Maybe they shouldn't have been playing around with a 7'2" 400 pound man.

Sounds like horsing around...... With a 350 LB guy.

What's more troubling is wanting any more of Webber on TV in the meantime..... :man10:

If Shaq tackled me, I'd be in some trouble. But "assault"? Seems insane.

He made a joke about it last night on air and everyone on the panel started laughing.

the line for "Assault" is only crossed when the relative net worths are above a 10 x multiplier……
