Coney Island (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Coney+Island) basketball star Lance Stephenson (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Lance+Stephenson) - a second-round Indiana Pacers (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Indiana+Pacers) pick in the June NBA draft - was busted Sunday for pushing his girlfriend down a flight of stairs, cops said.
Stephenson, 19, a legendary player at Brooklyn (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Brooklyn+%28New+York+City%29)'s Abraham Lincoln High School (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Abraham+Lincoln+High+School), roughed up Jasmine Williams (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Jasmine+Williams), 21, in the stairwell of her Brooklyn apartment building about 5 a.m., according to police.
The 6-foot-5 rookie point guard's blows sent Williams tumbling head-first down 10 steps, requiring her to be treated at a hospital for injuries to her head and neck, cops said.
Stephenson, who played one year at Cincinnati (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Cincinnati+Bearcats+%28Basketball%29) before getting drafted 40th overall by the Pacers, was hit with a charge of third-degree assault. He was awaiting arraignment last night.
He had been considered a first-round talent but dropped to the second round due to off-the-court issues, including a 2008 bust for sexually abusing a 17-year-old girl inside of Lincoln High School (http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Lincoln+High+School).

A criminal complaint provided Monday by the Brooklyn district attorney's office said that as Williams lay at the bottom of the stairs, Stephenson picked up her head and slammed it on the bottom step.

wise for the knicks not to take Lance stephenson showing ill judgement. I think he going to be a bust sadly not because of his skills and potential in which i dont think he will live up to but because of his poor judgements, maturity, work ethic and I.Q. Its bad enough to push your girlfriend down the stairs.

im not regretting the Knicks skipping him now...the last thing we would of needed was an off the court issue from a rookie of all people.

Williams lay at the bottom of the stairs, Stephenson picked up her head and slammed it on the bottom step.

Now I'm thrilled we didn't draft him.
Unless a woman is holding a ****ing gun to your head, you don't do that sort of thing smh
