Are you familiar with Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins? If not, don't worry. He's probably not going to be running with the Thunder for much longer.
Liggins—a little-used guard who averaged just 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds for Oklahoma City last season—stands accused of assaulting his girlfriend Jasmine Horton in front of the couple's two-year-old son on Saturday night. So what exactly did Liggins allegedly do? Well, according to Horton, he hit her in the head with his hand and also punched her in the head once she fell down after that. He kicked in the door of a bathroom when she tried to lock herself in it. He dropped a fan on her. He kicked her. And as if all of that wasn't bad enough, he dropped an Xbox on her head. What a guy!
Of course, Liggins is innocent until proven guilty. But Horton reportedly had injuries to her arm, scratches all over her back, and bruises on her chest when police arrived on the scene on Saturday. So don't be surprised if the Thunder decide to part ways with Liggins soon. It's clear that something happened between him and his girlfriend, and we're sure that they don't want to have anything to do with him if he did any of the things she alleges Liggins did. What a bad situation for everyone involved.
