OFFICER, GENTLEMAN O'Neal Giant crime fighter Shaquille O'Neal has added another collar to his already impressive record of police work. But, as they say in the movies, this time it's personal.
According to the Miami Herald, O'Neal helped bust an 18-year-old hit and run driver who dinged his 2007 Cadillac Escalade. What happened next will haunt the dreams of Miami's teenage drivers for years to come: "O'Neal and his bodyguard saw driver Emmnueo Cibrin leaving the scene, and leapt into the damaged SUV to give chase. They tailed Cibrin and passenger Junior Rondon for about five minutes before catching up with the two Tampa friends near Southwest 17th Avenue and Coral Way." When Cibrin finally stopped, "he and his friend were shocked to see the 7-foot-1 O'Neal step out of the Escalade's driver seat."
''I couldn't believe that,'' passenger and accomplice Rondon told reporters. "Of all the people. I mean, damn."
