Shaquille O’Neal, the former Heat, Lakers and Magic star, went to Gainesville to surprise neighborhood kids for a pickup game. He got the idea after seeing a video of a Gainesville cop, called to quiet some noisy kids. That officer ended up playing basketball with them.
O’Neal is a cop himself, sworn in last year as a reserve officer in Doral. He also has been a reserve cop in L.A., Arizona, Miami Beach and Golden Beach.
