City Attorney Won't Charge LB Phillips

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego city attorney's office says Chargers linebacker Shaun Phillips won't be charged in a case in which he was accused of striking a security guard in the face at a downtown hotel in late April.

Phillips was cited by police for misdemeanor battery after a security guard at the Ivy Hotel said the player hit him.

City attorney's spokeswoman Gina Coburn said that after an investigation, the city attorney's office declined to prosecute Phillips.

Coburn said in an e-mail Wednesday that officials didn't believe there was enough evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.
