LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Basketball superstar Shaquille O'Neal surprised some Florida kids playing ball in the street last week. 

Shaq saw the viral story of a Gainesville police officer who decided to shoot hoops with the kids, instead of reprimanding them for being too loud.

One of the neighbors had called the police to complain the kids were too loud, but instead of reprimanding them, the officer joined the game. Dash-cam video of the officer playing basketball with the kids went viral.

After Shaq heard the story, he had the officer take him back to the neighborhood, to surprise them with another game of basketball.
