Shaq heard about the story. Met Officer White. Both and other officers went to the neighborhood to surprise the kids.
Last week, someone called the Gainesville Police Department to make the complaint.
Officer Bobby White responded and instead of reprimanding the kids, he decided to join in and play with them.
His dash camera was rolling and captured more kids showing up to join in.
"Have fun. Glad to see y'all doing this than out there causing problems," Officer White told the group. "You play here every day? Okay, I'm going to try to bring some back-up out here tomorrow and we'll get a game going."
Shaquille O'Neal just dropped a huge surprise on the Florida Basketball Cop and the kids he shot hoops with in a viral video ... showing up to the department and playing some street ball.
Shaq arrived at the Gainesville Police Department Saturday and headed out to the same spot Officer Bobby White responded to a call last week which ended in a game of pick-up ball with local kids. It's pretty awesome, you can tell how pumped both the kids and the officers are to play with the big man.
Shaq Surprises Basketball Cop ... Game On!!!
