Atlanta Police are reportedly investigating an incident involving basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal and Robert Williams, a co-worker at TNT Broadcasting, where the latter has alleged that 'Shaq' attacked him back in 2013.
Williams went to the Atlanta Police Department and said that Shaq tackle-punched him, knocking him down and falling on top of him while they were at work at Turner Studios in May 2013.
He said he sustained "permanent injuries" as a result. Williams further claims "the injuries to his neck and spine were so bad, he needed major surgery to repair the damage."
The 42-year-old O'Neal, who retired in 2011 after a glorious 19-year NBA career, has not been charged with any crime for now with his lawyer claiming the incident was mere "horseplay."
Seven-foot-one and weighing in at 325 pounds, O'Neal signed on with Turner Sports and joined the popular Inside the NBA program shortly after retirement.
