Lance Stephenson and Jasmine Williams

In August 2010, Lance Stephenson reportedly pushed girlfriend Jasmine Williams down a flight of stairs and then slammed her head on the bottom step. Stephenson, a breakout high school basketball star from Brooklyn, New York who was drafted to the Indiana Pacers in 2010, was arrested and charged with assault, menacing and harassment. In July 2009, while still a student at Lincoln High School, Stephenson and one of his teammates were accused of groping a female student outside the school.
