Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib officially has been indicted on felony charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The indictment only serves as a formal accusation and does not convict Talib of any crime.

"The grand jury was not privy to a number of important facts," Talib's lawyers said in a statement. "We are very confident that once we have the opportunity to present all of the facts, this matter will be resolved in Mr. Talib's favor. Aqib looks forward to putting this matter behind him and returning to the game of football."

Talib is accused of shooting at his sister's boyfriend, Shannon Billings during a March 21 domestic dispute. Billings was not injured during the incident. Talib's mother told police that her son might have fired the gun at Billings.

A hearing and trial have not been scheduled. If convicted, Talib could face between 2-20 years in prison. Talib is out of jail on $25,000 bond.
