Lawrence Phillips in Trouble...

Lawrence Phillips released from jail

December 5, 2003
MONTREAL (AP) -- Former NFL running back Lawrence Phillips was released from jail Friday after he was charged with sexually assaulting his girlfriend.

Phillips, who has a history of legal trouble, posted bail of $767 and is due in court March 2.

Police say he assaulted his girlfriend Nov. 27 in Montreal. He also was charged Thursday with making threats and was jailed after initially failing to make bail.

Phillips was released by the CFL's Calgary Stampeders on Oct. 10 for disrupting practice by arguing with coach Jim Barker. The Stampeders signed Phillips after he was released in May by the Montreal Alouettes.

He was drafted sixth overall by the St. Louis Rams in 1996. A year later he was released by the Miami Dolphins. In 1999, he was let go by the San Francisco 49ers for insubordination.

While in college at Nebraska, Phillips pleaded no contest to domestic violence in a confrontation with a girlfriend.

Phillips needed a government permit, renewable each year, to play in Canada because of his police record in the United States.

I actually thought that Lawrence Phillips in Trouble was his name, not a headline. Sometimes when we make Gods out of young teen atheltes they never learn about no. He is about to learn that the further away from the limelight he gets, the darker his cell and longer his sentence.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
