Stephens remains in jail and no bond has been set.
Per the Commercial Appeal:
According to the arrest affidavit, the incident occurred at 5:45 p.m. Monday outside a home in the 6900 block of Waters Bend Cove. The woman told police that she and Stephens were arguing when he grabbed her wrists and pushed her down. She told police that when she got up Stephens grabbed her by her neck and threw her on the ground.
When she got up again, she said, Stephens grabbed her arm and threw her to ground again, causing her to hit her head on the pavement. She told police that Stephens left on foot as she lay on the ground dazed with blurry vision.
She then called 911 and was taken to Methodist Germantown. Police interviewed her at the hospital where they reported that she had several cuts and scratches on her arms, a cut on her nose and face, scrapes on her neck, a cut on her lip and a bloody and swollen left eye.
