CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - The Queen City saw many A-list celebrities during NBA All-Star Weekend. Thousands of fans and media in uptown Charlotte hoped to catch a glimpse of a celebrity while in town for the big game.
One Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer conducting traffic Sunday afternoon got lucky and was greeted by retired professional basketball player Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal.
"So Shaq comes through me and my partners intersection. He then rolls down his window and gives props to Officer Dominguez, Officer Edwards and I for the quick traffic control at our intersection," Officer Caleb Costner wrote on Facebook this weekend.
"I told him it wasn’t just us but that the entire CMPD was doing a great job running traffic so smoothly. He then said he supported and appreciated all we as officers do. Thanks for the encouragement and support Shaq from all of us!👊🏼 #respect," Coster wrote.
