GAINESVILLE, FL –  Talk about calling in the reserves. Back on January 15, a Gainesville police officer was sent to respond to a noise complaint about kids playing basketball too “loudly.” Officer Bobby White showed up to the game, but instead of punishing the kids, he joined in on the game for a while and even promised to come back for a rematch.

Dash cam video of the encounter went viral and was seen by millions online. One of the people that saw the video was none other than former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal. On Saturday, Shaq surprised Officer White and the Gainesville Police. He wanted to be part of Officer White’s backup when he re-challenged the kids to a street game.
