DALLAS – Former Los Angeles Rams star Aqib Talib is now being accused of starting the brawl that ended in a tragic shooting at a Dallas-area youth football game.
Details are emerging about a deadly incident that has police arresting Talib’s brother, Yaqub Talib, after he allegedly shot and killed Mike Hickmon, a youth football coach, at a game in Lancaster. … and now has witnesses saying it was Aqib who allegedly “walked across the field and started a brawl because he was upset about the officiating during the game.”
Said a witness, a coach named Heith Mayes via WFAA: Aqib “ran across the field and ran over on our sideline and got in the ref’s face … he threw the first punch at (coach) Mike.”
What’s the expression for White People? You can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of the girl? Aqib Talib was given tens of millions of dollars in career earnings. You can still find him going around starting fights at youth football games that escalate into shootings.
Aqib, who attended high school in Dallas and has a home here, was recently hired as a national NFL analyst for Amazon.
Police are also still investigating the circumstances that led up to the shooting, but also noted that it centered on an “altercation (between opposing coaches that) became physical, leading to the suspect pulling out a firearm and shooting Mr. Hickmon multiple times. After the shooting, the suspect fled the scene in an unidentified vehicle, taking the firearm with him.”
Authorities issued a warrant accusing Yaqub Talib of murder, a first-degree felony.
You sometimes have to wonder what the thought process is for someone with a net worth of tens of millions of dollars, as well as a sinecure doing commentary for Amazon, running over to the other side of the field to start fights at kids football games. The answer would be none. There was no thinking done from Mr. Talib at any point during this altercation, and possibly for the rest of his life.
But he used to be able to run really fast, so you should cheer for him on Sundays.
