Shaquille O'Neal Announces Plan To Run for Sheriff In 2020

Shaquille O'Neal has revealed that he plans to run for sheriff in 2020.

In an interview with Atlanta NBC affiliate 11Alive, the former NBA star said that while he's interested in politics, he would like to dedicate himself to public safety.

"Mayor, no, I would never run for mayor," said O'Neal. "In 2020, I plan on running for sheriff."

"It's not about politics. This is about bringing people closer together," he said. "You know, when I was coming up, people loved and respected the police, the deputies. And I want to be the one to bring that back, especially in the community I serve."

"I can put on a suit and have a conversation with Bill Gates. I can go in the hood and talk to the homies, and talk to the children," he said of his versatility.

"I know how to run a team. My style is going to be to surround myself with guys who have been doing it way longer than I've been doing it. Surround myself with smarter people."

As for whether he'd run in Georgia or Florida, he said: "I haven't made up my mind yet."
