Shaquille O'Neal joins street basketball game


Called out to a noise complaint, Florida police officer Bobby White had won over the alleged perpetrators and the internet by joining in a street basketball game instead of issuing a reprimand.

At the end of the game he promised a rematch and managed to surpass himself a few days later by turning up with NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal.

The 43-year-old former basketball pro chatted with locals after the game, adding further fuel to the Twitter hashtag #Hoopsnotcrime.
