Police cited Phillips for misdemeanor battery after a security guard at the Ivy Hotel said the player hit him.

City attorney's spokeswoman Gina Coburn said that after an investigation, the city attorney's office declined to prosecute Phillips. Coburn said in an e-mail Wednesday that officials didn't believe there was enough evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.
