Ex-NFL player Aqib Talib is being sued for wrongful death that left a youth football coach killed by his brother
Aqib Talib is being sued by the family of Michael Hickmon who claimed Talib and his brother’s actions ultimately led to Hickmon’s tragic death on August 13th, when he was shot and killed in front of his Youth Football Team.
Hickmon’s family claims the game was contentious, saying there were several calls that left everyone’s tensions running high, but after Hickmon’s team scored a touchdown, the Talib brothers were so upset they ended the game. When Hickmon went to get the game ball is when Aqib threw a punch.
That is when Aqib’s brother comes into the scene and fired five shots hitting Hickmon, who would die later at the hospital from the wounds.
The Hickmon family is suing the Talibs and others for wrongful death, asking for unspecified damages.
