Shaquille O’Neal: NBA legend, professional DJ, PhD holder, bodybuilding fanatic, 2020 Mr. Olympia ambassador, and now — Good Samaritan.

The 7’1″ lovable giant was recently thanked for his part in comforting a Florida driver who had gotten into a crash. According to the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and published reports, Shaq pulled over when he witnessed a crash on a highway. He made sure everyone at the scene was OK until the officials could arrive, as seen in this Twitter video.

Shaq, who has a house in Florida, quickly filled the officers in on the situation — but not before giving each of them a fist bump. What a guy.

The LA Lakers icon has a history of helping out total strangers, something he shared in common with his close friend, the late, great Kobe Bryant.

He’s also a law enforcement officer, of sorts. In 2019 he became a sheriff’s deputy in Broward County, FL. While he doesn’t get a badge and gun for becoming a deputy, he plays an important part in fostering community-police relations in Broward.

Shaq will have another role to play in December as the 2020 Honorary Olympia Weekend Ambassador. The four-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer will help the Olympia reach new audiences and advocate for the sport of bodybuilding.
