The actor most famous for his portrayal of Steve Urkel on 90s sitcom Family Matters, Jaleel White, has been accused of assault by the mother of his child.
TMZ reports that White, 33, is said to have “punched” the woman sources identify as Bridget Hardy. White and Hardy have a child together, and the infant was present in the car when the alleged assault occurred. Hardy is said to have reported incident to police Tuesday, and she says that White struck her in “one of her breast implants” while the two were driving down Pacific Coast Highway. The report also states that when the couple returned home, White shoved Hardy with force sufficient to somehow break a toilet tank. Did I do that?
A rep for White denies the allegations completely, and believes Hardy has an ulterior motive in accusing White in the incident:
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.”
Hardy was not injured in either incident.
