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.
