DORAL, FL — The ultimate Shaq Attack could be on the way. Retired NBA star Shaquille O’Neal has applied to be a reserve police State Farm All-Star Saturday Night - NBA All-Star Weekend 2014officer in Doral, Florida.

This wouldn’t be his first time at the rodeo, or rather, police force. Shaq worked as a reserve officer in Miami Beach. He was also sworn in last year as a part-time Golden Beach, FL cop.

No special treatment here. A Doral PD spokesperson says Shaq will have to go through the same procedure as any wannabe cop — a background check and a he’ll have to be certified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

If all goes well, it’s safe to say the 7’1″ NBA legend won’t be working undercover.
