SAN DIEGO (AP) - Chargers linebacker Shaun Phillips has been cited for misdemeanor battery for allegedly striking a security guard in the face at the Ivy Hotel in downtown San Diego early Sunday morning.

It is Phillips' second run-in with the law in three seasons.

"It's disappointing to hear about the issue involving Shaun Phillips. We'll continue to monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course," general manager A.J. Smith said in a statement.

Neither Phillips nor his agent responded to phone calls, texts and e-mails.
