When I was playing in the NFL, my coach Tony Dungy always said “nothing good happens after 12 a.m.”
Someone probably should have told Aqib Talib this.
Talib was at the V-Live nightclub when a fight broke out at 2:45 a.m. Talib and three other people were shot during the altercation, and Talib was driven to the hospital in his own car.
The Denver Broncos have confirmed that the 30-year old All-Pro cornerback has suffered a gunshot wound to his lower right leg, and he is expected to make a full recovery.
This isn’t the first time the Dallas native has been involved in a nightclub altercation. Last year Talib and his brother were involved in a fight in Dallas. Shots rang out when a bouncer broke it up. In 2011, Talib was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he was accused of firing shots at his sister’s boyfriend during a domestic dispute.
With the league cracking down on player conduct, Talib’s gunshot wound may not be the only thing he has to worry about. The Super Bowl-winner may be slapped with a suspension.
The Denver Broncos are scheduled to meet president Barack Obama for their 2016 Super Bowl Championship. Talib won’t be attending now that he is laid up from a gunshot wound.
