Darius Philon Surveillance Video Shows NFL DL Allegedly Pointing Gun At Women
TMZ Sports has obtained surveillance video of the moment NFL D-lineman Darius Philon allegedly pulled a gun on women in a strip club parking lot … but it’s unclear if the guy ever committed the crime.
Earlier this summer … a woman accused Philon — a 25-year-old who was playing for the Arizona Cardinals at the time — of threatening to shoot her and her friend in a strip club parking lot.
In the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman alleges that on May 17 … she was dancing at V-Live in Phoenix, Arizona when Darius asked her and her friend to come to his car so he could pay her.
She alleges that when they got to his car … he pulled a gun on them, pointed it at their chests and said, “Which one of you wants a bullet?”
She says when she told him to put the gun down and went to the other side of her friend … he pointed the gun at her a second time.
In the surveillance video … you can see Philon clearly speaking with the two women — but it’s difficult to tell if he ever brandishes a weapon.
Cops launched an investigation … and eventually arrested Philon on Aug. 9 — booking the 6-foot-1, 286-pounder for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
A day later, the Cardinals cut Philon.
But, Philon is still waiting to receive formal charges in the case … a rep for the Maricopa County Attorney’s office tells us, “We received the case for review less than a week ago and are currently reviewing it for a charging decision.”
Philon — who’s still an NFL free agent searching for another team — signed a 2-year deal worth $10 MILLION with the Cards just months before his August release.
In his 4-year career, Philon has started 19 games and piled up 9.5 sacks.
