For any gay man who has had (a) cop fantasies involving handcuffs, (b) Shaquille O'Neal dreams or (c) both, this one's for you. We always thought Shaq was a nice guy—no matter what Kobe said—but we didn't know he was so nice and gay friendly. His Shaqness helped the Miami Beach PD collar two gay bashing suspects.
The Miami Herald reports O'Neal is actually training to become a reserve MBPD officer. Early Sunday he was driving down fabulous and gay-friendly Washington Street when he witnessed two men jump out of a car, yell gay slurs and hurl a bottle at two male pedestrians. "[Shaquille] followed the vehicle until it turned onto Palm Island,'' said police spokesman Robert Hernandez. "He flagged down the Miami Beach officer on duty there, and the officer was able to apprehend the subject." Soon, the baller will be able to make his own apprehensions; his officer training has been completed and "he's already been fitted for a uniform." Hmm.
