There weren’t a lot of good things you could say about the Saint Louis Rams this year, but the one positive on the field was Running Back Steven Jackson.
During an awful year, he stood out as a player the team could build on and who other players could look up to.
Unfortunately now we have to talk about Jackson off the field and the accusations aren’t pretty.
His ex-girlfriend Supriya Harris has filed a complaint with the Las Vegas Police Department claiming that Jackson beat her while she was 9 months pregnant.
Here are a few details about the alleged abused from TMZ.com
In her complaint, Harris says, “Steven became enraged and pushed me to the ground, repeatedly.”
Harris also claims Jackson, “forcibly grabbed my arm and flung me against the door. I was crying and trying to protect my stomach from the blows, as I was 9 months pregnant.”
In the complaint, Harris claims Jackson “continued to shove me against the door until his nephew … interceded and yelled, ‘uncle, she has a baby, stop.'”
Harris claims she was “bleeding heavily” from wounds she received after she was smashed into a door handle.
Ten days after the alleged incident, Harris gave birth to their son. According to the complaint, Harris claims she left Steven 4 months later — after he threatened to beat her up again at a music festival in New Orleans

With any situation like this where it is her word against his you don’t want to be quick to make judgments on either side, but if there is evidence that Miss Harris’ claims are true then Jackson is a disgusting human being and needs to be behind bars. There is nothing worse than a man who beats on a woman and to beat on a pregnant woman is just vile and evil.
The key word though is:
People will be quick to jump the gun on both sides and I just caution you to wait until all the facts come out.
I will be monitoring the situation and investigating, so if I get more info you will be the first to know.
