He has played his entire NFL career, 2002-09, with the Bucs. From AP-
Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Jermaine Phillips has been arrested and charged with trying to choke his wife during an argument.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that Phillips was charged with domestic battery by strangulation. Jail records indicated he is scheduled to be released on his own recognizance Monday.
Authorities say Phillips’ wife called 911 early Sunday morning and told dispatchers that her husband had grabbed her around the neck.
She said she had confronted Phillips about a number she found in his cell phone. Sheriff’s officials say the couple argued, and Phillips then grabbed his wife’s neck.
Violence by a man towards a woman, with the exception of self defense, is just despicable. The Bucs seem to have a violent incident with their one of their players. Last year a player was stabbed by a girlfriend, in 2007 another Buccaneer was arrested for assaulting a pregnant woman. Is it too much to expect 50 or so professional athletes to stay out of trouble for 7 months?
