Cop who hooped in street with kids returns with backup: Shaq!

The Florida cop who went viral for playing basketball with kids in the street promised he’d return with backup, and, man, did he get it!

Shaquille O’Neal, who was sworn in as a reserve police officer in Doral a year ago, surprised Bobby White and the other officers in Gainesville, then joined them for some more pickup basketball.

Shaq didn’t appear to get too involved in the action, standing on the perimeter and leaving the action on the inside to the excited officers. But he made sure to leave the kids with a positive message before taking off.
