Former Canadian Football League player arrested

Former NFL running back Lawrence Phillips, who was wanted by police for domestic violence, was arrested Sunday after allegedly running his car into three teenagers who argued with him during a pickup football game, police said. Police had been seeking Phillips — a former Nebraska Cornhuskers star and ex-member of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes — since earlier this month for allegedly attacking his girlfriend twice, once choking her into unconsciousness. The teenagers were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
