Lance Stephenson Arrested for Assault

Lance Stephenson, who we featured in an interview from his NBA summer league play, is back in the news, but not for his play on the court.

Just mere days after a wave of positive news about the high school phenom had hit the media, the new Indiana Pacers rookie was involved in a police incident.

The 19 year old player, who made the jump to the NBA after one year playing at the college level in Cincinnati, faces multiple charges in New York, where he resides.

Lance was charged with assault after he allegedly attacked his girlfriend, pushing her down a flight of stairs and hitting her on the head.

A judge released Stephenson, 19, without bail late Sunday night after his arrest on assault, menacing and harassment charges. Prosecutors had asked for $7,500 bail.
