Chargers linebacker Shaun Phillips is being sued by a 54-year-old who claims S. Phillips e hit her at a Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. The alleged incident occurred back in 2008.

Phillips is scheduled to stand trial October 4 for another lawsuit involving alleged violence. In that case, a San Diego Ivy Hotel security guard claims Philips punched him in the face in April 2009.

In both cases, police declined to file charges due to insufficient evidence. Phillips was arrested in 2006 for an alleged tiff with a San Diego police officer, but prosecutors opted to not file charges in that case, as well.

Phillips, who, we should note, is active in the After School All-Stars charity program , is denying any wrongdoing in the Las Vegas incident.

Brent Schrotenboer of the San Diego Union-Tribune writes :

A police report of the alleged incident in Las Vegas said Phillips was “very cooperative and he apologized for the incident.” The woman, Lourdes Jaross, told police she tried to get onto a raised dance floor when Phillips told her not to and elbowed her in the head. “She had a bump on her head,” the police report said. Jaross "seemed by her conduct, speech and demeanor, to have been drunk.”

According to the police report, Phillips said he saw Jaross getting up to the stage area “where she shouldn’t be” and told her not to go there.

“He stated that she grabbed the back of his pants and he fell onto her. He apologized for the accident.”

The report says another woman “saw the incident, but it was later found that she was with Phillips most of the evening, but never did see the actual incident, after overcoming the language barrier.” The case then was closed for lack of evidence.

Jaross’ suit, filed in Las Vegas, seeks damages of more than $10,000 for injuries.
