CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Shaquille O'Neal was in Charlotte this weekend for NBA All-Star Weekend and had some nice words for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

In a Facebook post, CMPD Officer Caleb Costner said he and his partners were directing traffic when Shaq rolled down his window to give props to them.




Shaq then said he appreciated all that the officers do, and the two snapped a picture.

Shaq was one of several other celebrities at All-Star Weekend. Our Spectrum News team got pics with Shaq, Jamie Foxx, Yo Gotti, and Guy Fieri, and North Carolina natives Anthony Hamilton and J. Cole peformed at Sunday's game.
