LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- Less than a day after boasting he could never be tricked, Miami Heat star Shaquille O'Neal got caught in the web of celebrity prankster Ashton Kutcher.

O'Neal and Kutcher ran into each other in Los Angeles Tuesday and during the conversation, Shaq told the host of MTV's "Punk'd he could not be duped, the Miami Herald reported.

Less than a day later, O'Neal and his wife Shaunie were accosted in a Beverly Hills parking lot by a disgruntled Los Angeles Lakers fan claiming Shaq cut him off and stole his parking spot. The couple apologized then went into the restaurant for lunch.

After lunch, the couple found the "fan" still by their car -- with four flat tires. "Punk'd" producer Billy Rainy told the Herald Shaq's reaction made it one of his favorite pranks since the show began.

The stunt will be shown during the show's season finale Sunday night on MTV.
