WORST BATTERER IN NFL HISTORY:
Rewind: Former NFL player Lawrence Phillips (pictured above) is the worst batterer in NFL history. He was recruited by the University of Nebraska. When the team returned from East Lansing, Michigan, he went looking for his ex-girlfriend, Kate McEwan, he found her talking to another football player and proceeded to drag her down a stairwell by her long blonde hair, he stopped abusing her when the player intervened. When Phillips was playing for the SF 49ers, he got into an altercation with a woman in nightclub. When he asked her to dance, she politely declined, Phillips responded by punching her in the face. When he moved to Canada to play in the Canadian Football League, within months, he was wanted on another domestic abuse charge. Later that year, he was wanted for two domestic disputes in San Diego, one incident involved Phillips choking a woman into unconsciousness and Los Angeles police were seeking Phillips in connection with yet another domestic incident in Los Angeles. On August 21, 2005, Phillips was arrested for assault following a dispute with teens during a pick-up football game. Afterwards, he tried to run them over with his car. Fast Forward: In October, Phillips was found guilty of seven counts of assault with a deadly weapon (his car) and faces up to 20 years in prison. The sentencing date is on October 19th.
