Charges Reduced For Jermaine Phillips

March 8th, 2010

"Yo, Flip. Did you hear the one about Sabby making the Pro Bowl?"

Back in January, former Buccaneer linebacker Jermaine Phillips was arrested and charged with felony battery by strangulation.

Apparently his wife got under his skin at their Westchase home during the wee hours; The Tampa Tribune reported she was not seriously injured after the incident.

Just in time for NFL free agency, the State Attorney in Hillsborough County on Tuesday reduced Phillips’ charges to battery and the matter will be resolved in county court, per circuit court records obtained by JoeBucsFan.com.

If Phillips has no previous battery convictions — his record appears clean — the reduced charge is a misdemeanor offense that carries a maximum one-year jail sentence.

In other words, Phillips now sits in the same boat as Aqib Talib, without a cab driver demading a fat cash settlement.

How Phillips’ case proceeds will depend a lot on his current relationship with his wife. Regardless, the reduced charge could open some doors for him on the free agent market.

    These charges are totally fale.

    How do I know?? Because if Phillips hit his wife , his forearm bones would have shattered.

    Hey do the Bucs provide lawyers for these guys?

    I mean with all these court cases maybe that’s a reason the Glazers don’t have enough money to spend on Free Agency?

    If the Bucs retain a team lawyer maybe they’ll get a volume discount – throw Warrn Sapp into the system as well.
