Case Against Jermaine Phillips Is ClosedApril 30th, 2010
The State Attorney in Hillsborough County has closed the case against former Bucs linebacker strong safety Jermaine Phillips, who was charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation back in January and later had that charge reduced to a misdemeanor battery in March.
Phillips’ arrest came after an alleged incident with his wife at their Tampa home.
Per court records obtained by JoeBucsFan.com, Phillips’ case was closed last week after he completed 10 court-approved classes taken through the local Salvation Army as part of a diversion program for domestic violence intervention.
Phillips, 31, played for the Bucs from 2002-2009 and is a free agent.
Joe was a big fan of Phillips and sincerely hopes he can get back to the NFL.
