NEW YORK (AP) — Indiana Pacers draft pick Lance Stephenson has been arrested in his native New York City, accused of assaulting his girlfriend.

Police say Stephenson was taken into custody Sunday following a 5 a.m. fight with the woman in Brooklyn.

The woman was treated at a hospital for injuries sustained in a fall down a flight of stairs.

Pacers president Larry Bird said in a statement Sunday night that he is “aware of a situation involving Lance Stephenson.” He said the team is gathering information.

Stephenson was one of the nation’s top prospects coming out of high school, but he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after being accused of groping a 17-year-old girl. He played one season at Cincinnati before applying for early entry to the NBA draft.
