Shaquille O'Neal is really making himself at home in Boston. He's out and about… he's bought a big mansion… and he's locking and loading.
NBA superstar and Boston Celtic Shaquille O'Neal stopped by the Sudbury Police Department recently to apply for a firearms permit, the website The Patch reported.
The Celtics star has a long history serving roles with law enforcement in Arizona, Virginia and Florida.
While playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, O’Neal applied to be a special deputy with the Cuyahoga County sheriff's office.
Hey… Shaq can't go play cops and robbers without his Glock 9 mm in tow.
Actually… it's nice to hear that a sports star is going through the proper channels to carry a firearm. No "oops, that's… ummm… my girlfriend's gun in that pillowcase on the team plane."
