    SAN DIEGO -- Former NFL running back Lawrence Phillips will go to trial on charges that he attacked his girlfriend in 2005.

    A San Diego judge ruled Wednesday that the 33-year-old Phillips must stand trial on eight felony charges for two alleged assaults.

    He could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

    A call to his public defender on Thursday was not immediately returned.

    Phillips already is serving a 10-year sentence for hitting three teenagers with his car in Los Angeles.

    Phillips was once one of the nation's top college football players at Nebraska. The St. Louis Rams released him in 1997 and he went on to play for a number of teams.

    I remember seeing him on the local news a few years ago. He was "San Diego's Most Wanted."

    It's amazing how somebody who had so much going for him can't cope with the very basics in life. Especially when he had many chances to redeem himself. Freakin' amazing!!!

    Unfortunately, I am not surprised in the least by this. What a waste of talent.

    A very sad story indeed...one that's likely to end very badly.

    Those weren't "red flags" when Phillips was at Nebraska... they were red bedsheets. :icon_eek:

    The guy has demonstrated that nobody is safe if HE is around. Locked up is where he belongs.

    Yeah. I guess he wasn't going to change no matter how good he got it.

    Shame.... There are many NFL superstars who had it bad and developed to something good.
