7/8/2010 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Jaleel White -- the actor who played Steve Urkel on "Family Matters" -- is under investigation for allegedly battering a woman.

0708-jaleel-white-ex-getty
Sources familiar with the police report tell us ... the alleged victim claims White allegedly punched her in one of her breast implants while they were driving on Pacific Coast Highway two weeks ago, with an infant in the car.  We're told, she claims when they got home White allegedly slapped her, and pushed her into a toilet so hard it broke the tank.

Sources connected with White's baby mama, Bridget Hardy, tell TMZ Hardy is in fact the alleged victim.  We're told she did not report any injuries.
 
The alleged victim filed a report with the LAPD Tuesday.  The investigation is ongoing.

A rep for Jaleel tells TMZ, "There was absolutely no battery ... no abuse ... and the incident never happened."

The rep continues, "This is just a ploy in an ongoing custody battle over their young daughter to tarnish his name."

Battery happens thousands of times a day across the nation. http://bit.ly/aJocm2 Why is it that a CELEBRITY has to be exposed doing it before anyone has an opinion about it?

You notice that you never hear about the celebrity white man/black woman in the news like this and there are quite a few in Hollywood. They know how to keep their business private and white men know a black woman will hit back. We wait till you go to sleep.

It's a rare condition this day in age, to read any good news on the newspaper page. Love and tradition of the grand design, some people say is even harder to find.

With so much of this type of violence being claimed in the news today, I think many who are angry with their mates will come out of the woodwork, knowing there will be sympathy from most.

This is very unfair to the one being accused. We have always and always will voice opinions, even just hearing one side, second hand, and depending if it is against a person we adore from the world of the famly.

There does seem to be a lot of black men in the news and problems with their women, but they will move on. Handle it!
