NFL Star Accused of Beating Pregnant Girlfriend

1/28/2010 2:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Steven Jackson -- the starting running back for the St. Louis Rams -- has been accused of one of the most vile crimes imaginable ... beating up his girlfriend while she was nine months pregnant with his child.

Steven Jackson: Click to view the document!
Jackson's then-girlfriend Supriya Harris claims the NFL star got physical during an "argument" in March 2009 ... this according to a complaint filed with the Las Vegas Police Department.

In her complaint, Harris says, "Steven became enraged and pushed me to the ground, repeatedly."

Harris also claims Jackson, "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 mos pregnant."

In the complaint, Harris claims Jackson "continued to shove me against the door until his nephew ... interceded and yelled, 'uncle, she has a baby, stop.'"

Harris claims she was "bleeding heavily" from wounds she received after she was smashed into a door handle.

Harris says Jackson took her to a nearby hospital -- but instructed her to lie and tell doctors that she was injured from a fall in the shower.

Ten days after the alleged incident, Harris gave birth to their son. According to the complaint, Harris claims she left Steven 4 months later -- after he threatened to beat her up again at a music festival in New Orleans.

Steven JacksonJackson and Harris have been arguing over child support payments -- and recently Harris had filed documents with the court begging the judge to force Steven to pay up. That case is still pending.

We talked to Jackson's rep -- but we're still waiting for comment. Harris declined to comment on the matter.

UPDATE: St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo just released the following statement: "We are aware of the situation involving Steven Jackson. We are in the process of gathering information. We are always concerned with issues involving our players."

God, I'm sick and tired of violent men. Lock them up on a deserted island so the rest of humanity can be safe. Soon enough they'll kill each other, all of them trying to be the toughest and the most macho. Good riddance.

You'd think, given her pictures and video, Supriya Harris could have fought back...

This (behavioral outbursts) often happen just after the football season is over with these guys. They only get their millions between Sept and Dec; unless the playoffs are in the future -- which the Rams didn't have to worry about. The rest of the season they are begging from their Sports Agents who are smart and stingy individuals; maybe only $5k a month.

My guess is Spirilyo Harris (or WTF) wasn't seeing the $$$ she was used to during the regular season so she called the cops ...

Very Shallow/Intellectually challenged individuals are in play here, make no mistake.

She probably is just trying to get child support, and accused him of this, it's pretty easy to lie about this stuff you know. Didn't help she waited almost a year to come forward, right at the same time she is trying to suck money out of him, coincidence ?

You bleeding hearts, you gotta wait till the end of it to see if he's guilty or not. Sit at home and munch your pringles hitting f5 on tmz dot com you cud chewing cows.

First Lawrence Phillips, then Leonard Little, and now Jackson. I'm sick of being a Rams fan. I will forever curse the day they came to St. Louis.

My daughter was married to an NFL player, he broke her nose, beat her and fathered two children and guess what, she's having a hard time getting child support. WHAT A SHOCKER! They were high school sweet hearts and I knew this guy was a loser from the jump. There is obviously a problem here, classes, therapy regardless if they seem to need it should be mandatory along with football practice.

I hope that the NFL send a message to its players and suspends this animal. Domestic violence is not something that deserves a slap on the wrist. I hope this girl keeps her baby far, far away from this loser!!

Let's see she waited 4 months to leave him after this supposedly happened and it took her 10 months to decide to file a report with the police.

Not saying he's innocent or defending him but her actions seem suspicious to me.

You are stupid! That was L. Little thier Left Devensive End that killed a woman while driving drunk. God, get your facts straight.

Oh, and I'm with all the people questioning why it took her until just now to file a police report, do you know that now the police only have until March 2010 to actually go after him for this??? One year after an incident takes place to press charges, oh and not to mention all the evidence is GONE!

I understand not leaving him for four months, a lot of women stay in abusive relationships, I know a girl personally that is still with a guy that is abusive, yet she stay because "she loves him, and he didn't mean it". But again, after you leave him you should have at least filed the report then. But currently they are in a child support battle, and to throw this on that fire would make it so he has to pay more... Which is dumb, becuase if he is charged and convicted he's gonna lose out on that NFL paycheck so how much would she be getting then, huh? lol
