NFL | Phillips Misses Court Date
The Associated Press reports former NFL and CFL RB Lawrence Phillips missed a recent court date because Canadian officials wouldn't let him enter the country, his mother said Wednesday, March 10. Phillips was twice stopped at a New York-Quebec border crossing while attempting to enter the country to answer to sexual assault charges. Canadian customs officials pulled Phillips off a Greyhound bus Wednesday and denied him entry because he lacked a proper visa. Phillips attempted to enter Canada for a March 2 court appearance, but was turned away at the border, according to Phillips' mother, Juanita Phillips. Phillips was charged with assault, sexual assault and uttering death threats against his Montreal girlfriend. He was released on $1,000 bail on Dec. 5. Phillips was then forced to leave Canada because his work visa expired.
