I know where you can find Lawrence Phillips...

Any date with history and another chapter of Pros and Cons....

Lawrence Phillips convicted of assault with deadly weapon
October 10, 2006

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Former NFL and Nebraska running back Lawrence Phillips was convicted Tuesday of seven counts of assault with a deadly weapon for driving a car at a group of young men, injuring three.

The 31-year-old Phillips drove onto a field near Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum after losing a pickup football game on Aug. 21, 2005. He struck two boys, ages 14 and 15, and a 19-year-old man, and narrowly missed four others between 15 and 24 years old, according to the prosecutor.

The three who were struck sustained "severe bumps and bruises and cuts," Deputy District Attorney Todd Hicks said.

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury deliberated about an hour before finding Phillips guilty, Hicks said.

Phillips faces up to 20 years in state prison. A sentencing date is expected to be set Oct. 19.

The prosecutor told jurors that Phillips became agitated when his team fell behind in the pickup game. He left the field, accused the boys of stealing from him and drove onto the field at a high rate of speed, Hicks said.

Defense attorney Leslie Ringold argued that her client's actions were neither willful nor intentional, and said there was "woefully insufficient evidence of assault."

She said the car Phillips was driving first hit the front wheel of a bike and fishtailed.

Phillips was arrested that day and has remained jailed since.

He has a history of trouble with the law, going back a decade to his time as one of the nation's top college football players.

The St. Louis Rams released him for insubordination in 1997 after he played 25 games with them. Phillips signed with the Miami Dolphins later in the 1997 season, but was released after pleading no contest to hitting a woman in a nightclub.

Phillips was the top offensive player in NFL Europe in 1999 after setting league records for rushing and touchdowns with the Barcelona Dragons.

He signed with the San Francisco 49ers later that year, but was released for missing a practice. He also has played in the Canadian Football League.

My guess is that Mr. Phillips perhaps has a substance abuse problem along with other problems. That guy's been a known douchebag since he was 19.

I had a front row seat with the big screen and the house to myself! I'll bet ur ass was puckering on that last series...!...
Fight On!

You know, the days of Hollywood, running up and down the field with Matt, Reggie, LenDale, those are gone; 'SC's a great team with some defensive weakness..they've transitioned into a hard running, knocking team...even if they win by 1 or 2 points, I'm happy...they've got a long road to go with Norte Dame, CAL and Oregon, those will be the real tests of this team...those 3 games will put them in the Championship...

By the way, have you noticed something different about the Uniforms and numbers.....John David Booty is #10 and so is Linebacker Brian Cushing...

Washington had 2 #4's and 2 #8's....the only thing I can figure out is that only one of said number can be on the field at one time i.e. Offense/Defense....did you notice that????? and how long has this been going on????

It's all confusing

My son was asking why JDB was playing defense and then he turned to me and said "oh that's Brian Cushing, huh dad?"

A chizip off the ol' block *sniff, sniff*
