Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Warren Sapp probably won’t be lobster fishing for a very long time.

According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Sapp was bitten by a shark while lobster fishing on Wednesday.

“Former Bucs defensive tackle Warren Sapp, a regular on charter fishing trips in his retirement these days, was bitten in the arm by a shark while lobstering on a charter based out of Marathon in the Florida Keys.

“It’s simple,” charter captain Jack Carlson said via text. “He was lobstering with me and a shark bit Sapp while he was grabbing the lobster. He’s OK.”

“The sharks hang around those lobster holes, because they feed on the lobster as well,” Carlson said.

Carlson said Sapp “may need stitches” for the injury — to the inside of his left forearm, near the elbow — but that he kept fishing. “We bandaged it up, put some gauze on there, some black electrical tape and hit a couple more spots, then headed in,” Carlson said.”

Sapp can’t be too upset about getting bit, as he was charged with 3 counts of domestic violence earlier this year after he bit the middle finger of his girlfriend, among other things.

I guess you can say that it came back to bite him in the ass.
