Shaquille O’Neal — Chokes Out Tow Man … ‘You Put a Boot On My F***ing Car!’

Exclusive Details 100213_shaq_launchShaquille O”Neil got one of those dreaded parking boots on his truck — and all he had to do to get it removed for free was choke out the dude who did the the booting … our sources has learned.

Ok, Shaq was playfully strangling Spence Beck of ABS Booting in the video he posted on Instagram Tuesday night — but it was all the boot man”s idea.

Spence tells us a few hours after he slapped the device on Shaq”s ride outside an Atlanta restaurant (someone forgot to feed the meter) … he got a call, and instantly recognized the Diesel”s voice.

According to Spence, Shaq played his cop card, saying … “I’m a U.S. Marshal, I need you to remove this boot.”

If you didn”t know … Shaq really was deputized back in 2005 when he helped feds track down sexual predators — and that was good enough for Spence.

Spence says he told Shaq he”d waive the $75 fine in exchange for a co-starring role in one of  Shaq”s Instagram vids. 

Sweet deal for Shaq … though we”re guessing the boot man”s neck wasn”t thrilled.
