Jermaine Phillips arrested on felony battery charges

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had several guys on the wrong side of the window that separates the front seat and back seat of a police cruiser. 

Now they have another.

Safety Jermaine Phillips, according to the tip from a reader regarding the online database of the Hillsbrough County Sheriff’s Office, was arrested today on felony charges of “domestic battery by strangulation.”

Phillips is being held without bond.

The 30-year-old Phillips was placed on injured reserve in September with a broken thumb.  The nine-year veteran has spent his entire career with the Buccaneers.

    The good news is that his thumb is healed. Assuming that it was a Homer Simpson style strangling.

    It’s good to see that the Bucs are making up for their bad play on the field by being criminals off of it.

    Look for the Eagles or Bengals to make a move for him in the off-season.
    Eagles love chokers.
