Judge Clears Former Angel

May 04, 1999|BILL SHAIKIN

A judge cleared former Angel Tony Phillips of felony drug charges Monday, ending a story that started two years ago.

Anaheim police arrested Phillips after discovering him in a Katella Avenue hotel room with $30 worth of cocaine and a pipe used to smoke it. Under a program for first-time offenders, Phillips pleaded guilty to one count of felony cocaine possession, with the charge subject to dismissal if he completed drug counseling and subsequently stayed drug-free for one year.

In accordance with that agreement, Phillips' attorney, Allan Stokke, withdrew the guilty plea Monday. North Orange County Municipal Court Judge Robert Keefe then dismissed the charge.
