Aqib Talib: DPD Made an "Honest Mistake"

The Dallas Police Department mistakenly tweeted that Talib had been arrested two weeks ago



    Richardson native and Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib says he harbors no ill will against the Dallas Police Department, after Maj. Max Geron mistakenly tweeted that he had been arrested for causing a disturbance at a Dallas nightclub a little over two weeks ago.

    As it turns out, the man arrested was Talib’s brother Yaqub, and Geron tweeted an apology shortly thereafter.

    It had been reported that Talib was considering taking action against the DPD over the incident, but those reports were either incorrect or Talib has since changed his mind, telling the Boston Globe this week that he considers the incident an “honest mistake”--though he added that he isn’t often mistaken for his brother, or the other way around.

    "No, definitely not," he said. "That doesn't happen too much. But that's some hard-working guys in Dallas. They were just doing their job and they made a mistake, an honest mistake, man. It happens sometimes, man."
