LOS ANGELES (AP) -Former football star Lawrence Phillips has been sentenced in Los Angeles to 10 years in prison after being convicted of assault with a deadly weapon.
The sentencing Friday had been repeatedly delayed while he dealt with another case.
The 31-year-old Phillips was convicted two years ago on seven counts. He has been jailed since he drove onto a field near Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. His car struck three people after he became upset over losing a pickup football game.
Phillips was once one of the nation's top college football players. The St. Louis Rams released him for insubordination in 1997 and he went on to play for a number of teams.
