This just in, stemming from this, and this. From the Garland Police Department:

Garland investigators have obtained warrants for Aqib Talib and Okolo Talib in connection with a disturbance police responded to on March 21 in the 900 block of Green Pond Drive.

On Monday, March 21, just before 7:30 pm Garland Police responded to the disturbance where it was reported people were outside fighting and gunshots had been heard. When police arrived they found 40-year-old Shannon Billings alone and outside his residence.

Shannon was listed as a suspect in a disturbance earlier the same day at the same location. He was later taken into custody and charged with assault and interference with emergency phone call from the earlier incident. Police began their investigation into the second disturbance of the day. The information gathered at the scene along with information gathered by detectives on follow-up investigations have led police to believe that Aqib Talib attempted to physically assault and did shoot at Shannon Billings. They also believe Okolo Talib, Aqib's mother, shot at Shannon Billings.

Based on that information warrants have been obtained for Aqib Talib for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and for Okolo Talib for aggravated assault with a deadly Weapon.

The charges are classified as second-degree felonies and carry a range of punishment of 5-20 years in prison. Okolo Talib turned herself into the Garland Jail this morning. She was booked in for the aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. At the time of book-in an additional charge of felon in possession of firearm was also added based on a previous conviction. Bond was set at $25,000 for the aggravated assault charge and $5,000 for the possession of firearm charge.

Aqib Talib is scheduled to turn himself in sometime later this week on his warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Bond for that warrant is set at $25,000.

Is it just me or is this the biggest yawn of a story ever published on free daily news website?

Great post on Unfair Park about Von Millerhttp://blogs.dallasobserver.co...

I don't know why it's over there, but whatever. I give the guy props for taking that stand before he's made any money. Any team that blackballs him for that and passes is just plain stupid. Should the Cowboys take him if he's available? He's more suited for a 3-4 and lining up on the edge in a 3 pt. stance.

Aggie LBs are to the NFL what Duke PFs are to the NBA. Pure Roster Anthrax.

(Dat Nguyen being the sole exception to that rule.)

Good strong 3rd post. In other news, the Rangers season is about to start. The team that plays in this little fair 'burg. Noone really knew Talib when he played high school here, in college, or in the NFL. BFD(that stands for big fucking deal)

The only reason RW is making this such a big deal is b/c apparently he is the one who broke the story. Richie doesn't care that none of us give 2 shits about it. This is the story he found out about first and God dammitt he is going to give us every detail that unfolds!

I'm waiting for the day that Richie gets into investigative journalism. Hell, he's already got the blog and does a radio show, why not one more job.

Maybe he can borrow some money for bail from Dez. Afterall Dez should have plenty considering he doesn't pay his bills.

Based on the picture in the article it looks like he plays wing for the Dallas Stars.

Played at Richardson Berkner and Kansas. Local kid. THAT is why it's news.

Google is your friend. Why don't you do a 15 second search instead of asking a question like that, troll?

I'm sure he knows how to google. His point was a little more subtle than that: if you have to google him, he' ain't news.

".. if you have to google him, he ain't news."

Meaning .. if it's something you Already Know, then it's news. If it's a topic you haven't heard of, about someone you're not familiar with then, of course, it cannot be news.

I think I understand what you're saying but I just disagree. And his point wasn't subtle, it was snarky (snide and sarcastic). There is a difference.
