Indiana Pacers draft pick Lance Stephenson is doing damage control.
As BOSSIP previously reported that Stephenson had been arrested for allegedly pushing 21-year-old Jasmine Williams, the mother of his child, down a flight of stairs.
BOSSIP was contacted this afternoon by a spokesperson for Lance, who offered the following statement:
Lance Stephenson’s actions do not reflect his esteemed future career or the public reflection of the Indiana Pacers.
The responsibility of Stephenson’s actions will be handled with proper legal consequences if needed due to the alleged incident. The amount of emotional strain affecting Lance, his family, and of those involved are firmly being challenged by Lance’s sincere desire to obtain emotional help.
Lance’s overwhelming past has no connection to his inspiring future with the Indiana Pacers.
Is it just us, or was that confusing???
Lance has already had his share of problems with the law, and now it looks like he could potentially face felony charges. SMH.
