One Great Season
Lance Stephenson, the one-time New York prep star nicknamed "Born Ready," was arrested here in Brooklyn for allegedly pushing his girlfriend down a flight of stairs over the weekend, according to multiple reports.
Stephenson pushed 21-year-old Jasmine Williams -- his girlfriend and mother of their 2-year-old daughter -- down the steps as he waited for her to return home Sunday at 5 a.m., the Associated Press reported. Stephenson yelled, "Are you kidding me?" before pushing her down the stairs, witnesses told the AP.
Stephenson, who had a decent freshman season at the University of Cincinnati last winter, was picked in the second round of the NBA Draft in June by the Indiana Pacers. The 19-year-old will be paid $700,000 this season.
