Another NFL player may be in trouble with the law.

The Dallas Observer reported on Monday that Aqib Talib, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback, has been labeled as a "person of interest" in a March 21 shooting by the Garland Police Department.

The incident reportedly involved Talib's sister, mother, his sister's boyfriend and at least five gunshots were fired.

According to a GPD initial report about the incident and two sources familiar with the case Talib allegedly attempted to pistol-whip his sister Saran's boyfriend, Shannon Billings, and then, after a struggle, used his mother Okolo's pistol and fired several shots at Billings as he fled the scene on foot.

According to the report, the 25-year-old could be "arrested and charged with anything from discharging a firearm within a municipality to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon."

The Buccaneers selected Talib with the 20th overall pick in the 2008 draft.
