Actor Lou Diamond Phillips, who starred in the movies Young Guns and La Bamba, among others, was charged with domestic battery on Thursday in Los Angeles. The charge stems from a dispute he experienced last month with his girlfriend. On August 11, an argument ensued between the two which led to a physical confrontation. Phillips allegedly pushed his girlfriend and dragged her across the house, scraping up both her knees. She managed to wiggle out of his grasp, snatch a phone, and lock herself in the bathroom where she dialed 911. If convicted of the crime, Phillips faces a $2,000 fine and up to one year in jail. His arraignment is set for Oct. 18, 2006.
