I don’t know if it is the heat, the “moistness” of our society or just random, but the amount of athletes both former and current having trouble with the law has been at an all time high.

The latest athlete in trouble is Lance Stephenson.

If you are like:

“Who in the blue hell is Lance Stephenson?”

He would be the 2nd round draft pick of the Indiana Pacers who apparently have a bit of a temper.  Here are the details:

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.

Stephenson, who played one year at Cincinnati 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.

Stephenson has quite a history for just being 19 years old.  No one reason to put your hands on anyone much less a woman to the point they are plummeting head first down a flight of stairs.

You always want to hear both sides of the story, but the facts are when violence is involved that isn’t a healthy relationship for either person.

I hope Stephenson gets the help that he needs (even if that means going to jail) and I hope Miss Williams realizes that a lot of times when a man puts his hands on a woman he is likely to do it again.

Stephenson needs to understand that being a 2nd round pick his contract is such the Pacers can get rid of him with no penalty at any time. From the looks of it he is running out of chances, so whatever the issue he is having needs to get corrected quickly before he is just another statistic.

    What's with this new phenomenon (Is it new or is just getting more attention?) of people not keeping their hands to themselves? And that includes you, too, ladies. I really can't comprehend it. Maybe I'm too practical and I would rather leave a relationship instead of risking my face being altered b/c I couldn't keep my hands to myself.
