Lance Stephenson Arrested

by August 15, 2010

Innocent until proven guilty, but according to the New York Daily News, newly signed Indiana Pacer Lance Stephenson was arrested over the weekend: “Coney Island basketball star Lance Stephenson – a second-round 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’s Abraham Lincoln High School, roughed up 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.”

Unfortunately, this is not Born Ready’s first brush with the NYPD.
