Oklahoma City Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins has been accused of beating up his girlfriend Jasmine Horton — allegedly punching her and dropping a fan and an Xbox 360 on her as their 2-year-old son looked on. Liggins has been accused of beating Horton and was released from jail on an $8,000 bail. According to The Oklahoman, Liggins supposedly punched her, and dropped a fan and the heavy game box on her head. Their 2-year-old son was in the room during the incident according to the probable cause affidavit filed on Tuesday. Horton, who describes herself as Liggins' girlfriend, said Liggins hit her in the head with his hand and then punched her in the head when she fell on the ground, according to the affidavit filed in Oklahoma County District Court.  Horton claims she locked herself in a bedroom before Liggins reportedly kicked in the door, pushed her down and assaulted her, according to the affidavit. Horton had injuries on her hands and fingers as well as bruises on her chest and back. Liggins was booked on Saturday under domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse in the presence of a minor. The general manager of the Thunder Sam Presti said in a statement, "We reiterate the serious nature of this issue," before stating that the Thunder has "no further comment at this time."
