    Sounds like the man whooped Aquib's sister and Aquib and his mother then went looking for some payback instead of letting law enforcement handle the situation. CB might now be Tampa's biggest need in the draft.

    Pretty sure they lost Tanard Jackson last year to an ugly knee injury too. Good thing for them Brent Grimes was pretty awesome for a rook cb (Damn you Kareem Jackson!).

    Real protective you moron. If you were really pissed, you should've taken your hands and slammed them against his facial features. Threatening his life with a gun? That's for thugs and tards.

    OTOH....

    Is it really assault if the guy isn't hurt?

    that would suck to have spent such a high draft pick, knowing he had a somewhat shady past, and now be looking at losing him.

    :confused: Brent Grimes plays for the Falcons and Talib plays for the Bucs. I'm just confused by what you said.

    The Bucs should release him. He needs a second chance. The Texans should give it to him.

    And Grimes wasn't a rookie last year, I'm also confused.

    Hell yes. Assault with a deadly weapon, shooting bullets at someone may just be a tad bit frightening...because if one of those lands right...assault just jumped to murder.

    But like...if I was pissed and swung a bat all around but never hit anyone...

    I realize there is some punishment for firing a gun at somebody, I'm not trying to argue that...but isn't there something other than assault that applies? Terrorism maybe? Just scaring people to scare people. Idk....seems really dumb to call it assault if no one is even slightly bruised. Almost as dumb as it is to be making millions playing a game and blow it by popping a gun off....

    Assault is just the act of making someone feel that they're in danger, battery is if you actually cause harm. So if you were swinging a bat at a person and they felt like you were going to hit them with it, you've committed assault.

    People often mistake assault and battery.

    FYI, from Black's:

    assault, n. 1. The threat or use of force on another that causes that person to have a reasonable apprehension of imminent harmful or offensive contact; the act of putting another person in reasonable fear or apprehension of an immediate battery by means of an act amounting to an attempt or threat to commit battery. 2. Criminal law. An attempt to commit battery, requiring the specific intent to cause physical injury. - Also termed (in senses 1 and 2) simple assault. 3. Loosely, a battery. 4. Popularly, any attack. - assault, vb. - assaultive, adj. Cf. battery

    Logic and facts have no place within the world of KJ bashing.

    So we've got another NFL player acting like a thug. Why am I not surprised?

    Just another reason as to why I say that these guys are way over paid and I'd like to see the owners win their fight in this thing. NFL players have no idea how good they have it. This guy probably just ruined his career.

    Speaking as a Houston Police Officer, you'd be arrested for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. It doesn't matter whether you strike the person what matters is your intent. Just because you have a lousy swing with a bat and miss doesn't mean you didn't intend to hit them. You'd still be headed to prison where they'd make sure you have a special roommate.

    Is he really done as an NFL player?

    Of course he will likely be suspended....but I don't think they will ban him...

    He probably won't spend a whole lot of time in jail either...

    That assumes intent. You can pull a frustrated Jimmy Hendrix with a bat and not be guilty of anything.
