Shaq’s Lawyer On Incident: ‘Nothing But Horseplay’
Shaquille O’Neal is the subject of an open assault investigation by police in Atlanta after an incident his lawyer described as “horseplay” in which a co-worker was injured last year.
No charges have been filed by local police over the event, which according to a police report is alleged to have occurred May 9 and first reported to police July 2.
According to Robert Williams, a co-worker of O’Neal’s at Turner Studios, for whom O’Neal is an NBA analyst, the 15-time All-Star “ran out of a room and hit me with a tackle punch to the back knocking me down and falling on top of me injuring my neck and back,” the police report says.
