Rams RB Steven Jackson has been accused of beating up former girlfriend Supriya Harris while she was nine months pregnant with his child, according to TMZ.com.

“Steven became enraged and pushed me to the ground, repeatedly,” Harris said in a complaint filed with the Las Vegas Police Department. She went on to claim 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 nine months pregnant.”

Harris said she left Jackson four months after the incident after he threatened to beat her up again at a music festival in New Orleans.

“We are aware of the situation involving Steven Jackson,” said St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo in an official team statement. “We are in the process of gathering information. We are always concerned with issues involving our players.”
