Talib Doubtful To Plea Bargain On Monday

December 10th, 2009

Helmet-wielding, alleged cabbie-slugging, coach-cussing, stud cover cornerback Aqib Talib returned to practice on Wednesday after missing time and Sunday’s game with a bad hamstring.

Mr. Talib is likely to play against the Jets on Sunday. But he seems to have no plans to throw on his best suit and wheel and deal in a Pinellas County courtroom on Monday morning.

This week Talib and his legal team filed a waiver of appearance for Talib at his pretrial hearing scheduled for Monday, per court documents.

The hearing is the next step in the State vs. Talib, in which the Bucs’ “wild child” is charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly belting a cab driver in the back of the head while the cabbie drove him, Torrie Cox and Angelo Crowell back to the Bucs’ training camp hotel on Aug. 18.

Often at pre-trial hearings for misdemeanor cases, plea bargains are worked out and the defendant can enter a plea before the judge and be sentenced immediately.

So it seems that Team Talib isn’t interested in making a deal.

Joe will bring you more analysis of Talib’s case in the coming days.

    Joe I’m surprised at you! Didn’t you hear the latest?

    Talib’s lawyer is trying to make a deal so that Talib can be roomies with Plexaco Burris! 😉
