NFL Player Accused of Beating 9-Month Pregnant GirlfriendJanuary 28th, 2010
St. Louis Rams running back, Steven Jackson is at the center of a disturbing case pointing to him as being responsible for viciously beating his girlfriend while she was nine-months pregnant.
In a voluntary statement given to Las Vegas police, the alleged victim, Supriya Harris, uncovers the disturbing details of the incident that reportedly went down back in March 2009.
Harris says that an argument the then couple was having somehow erupted into physical violence.
“Steven became enraged and pushed me to the ground, repeatedly,” says Harris. “(Steven) 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. (Steven) continued to shove me against the door until his nephew … interceded and yelled, ‘uncle, she has a baby, stop.'” That’s when Jackson took Harris to the hospital, where she followed Jackson’s orders by saying she suffered her injuries from a fall in the shower.
Though Harris says she was “bleeding heavily” from the incident, thankfully the baby was not harmed.
Harris has since left Jackson, because she says he continued to be violent with her.
The couple now has an ongoing child support case between them. Harris is reported to be begging the judge to order the multimillion dollar NFL star to pay up.
This is a classic example of rage fueled by steroids. Now, another NFL player, the Arizona Cardinals’ Eric Green, is being accused of raping transvestite, Angelina Mavila. You may also remember the Ron Artest brawl back in 2004; Jayson Williams killing a man; Jason Kidd accused of beating his ex-wife, Joumana; Rae Carruth being sentenced to 18-24 years in jail for conspiracy to commit murder on his baby mama; and Michael Vick killing dogs.
I think there needs to be steroid testing in the NFL and some sort of counselling for professional athletes who suffer from rage. Don’t you agree?
