Unlike the diss-capade that proceeded Rick Ross’ former officer years, basketball star Shaquille O’Neal has no problem slapping on a badge.

The Cleveland Cavaliers player has applied to become a special deputy for Cuyahoga County. With the role, Shaq will have the right to carry a gun and arrest people. This isn’t the first time seven-footer has worked in law enforcement. O’Neal has also served in Arizona, Virginia and Florida.

O’Neal is currently awaiting to receive word from the Cuyahoga County sheriff– who forwarded his application to the state agency–to find out his employment status. – Linda Hobbs
