Officer Who Played Basketball With Kids Brings Shaq Along This Time
Last week, Officer Bobby White with the Gainesville Police Department in Florida became a social media star when instead of reacting harshly to a noise complaint regarding a group of kids playing basketball "loudly" in the streets, he ended up playing the game with them.

The footage of Officer White's interaction with the kids soon went viral and was watched by millions including Shaquille O'Neal. Touched by Officer White's actions, the basketball legend paid a visit to the Gainesville Police Department on Saturday to see Officer White.

Subsequently, O'Neal, Officer White, and other officers decided to go see the same kids.

An online video showed the moment when Shaq stepped out of his vehicle and greeted the kids who seemed very surprised to say the least.

Then O'Neal played with them for a while and also offered some words of wisdom.

The police department's Facebook post noted that those "kids will never forget the day Shaq rolled up to their house to play ball."
