Aqib Talib was NOT arrested: Dallas police incorrectly report arrest of Broncos cornerback

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas police department caused quite a stir when they said they arrested Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib for public intoxication Sunday morning. In fact it was Aqib's older brother Yaqub.

Aqib Talib was not arrested in Dallas Sunday, contrary to numerous reports. In fact, it was his brother Yaqub, the Dallas police department eventually confirmed.

The confusion began when the Dallas police department initially reported that they were holding Aqib in Dallas.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio engaged Talib's agent and found those reports to be untrue.

The Broncos have since confirmed PFT's report. It wasn't Aqib.

And Dallas PD has now retracted its report and apologized to Aqib Talib.

Not that that will make much difference in a potential lawsuit. It's amazing how much damage a false report like this - from the source, the police department - can do to a person, even in five minutes' time. We offer our apologies for initially extending this reports to all of you as well.
