Jaleel White, erstwhile Steve Urkel, accused of battering mother of his child


If you thought Steve Urkel was just a scrawny nancy on Family Matters, then obviously you haven't been reading court dockets: Jaleel White is under investigation for allegedly battering a woman. Maybe girls made fun of his suspenders one too many times.

A, LAPD report says an alleged victim claims White punched her in one of her breast implants during a drive on the Pacific Coast Highway two weeks ago while there was an infant in the car, TMZ reports. After they got home, White then allegedly slapped her and pushed her into a toilet, breaking the tank. Sources say the alleged victim is Bridget Hardy, the mother of White's daughter. The report was filed last Tuesday.

Don't believe everything you read, though; White's rep says the accusations are false: "There was absolutely no battery
... no abuse ... and the incident never happened. This is just a ploy in an ongoing custody battle over their young daughter to tarnish his name."

Well, mission accomplished, if you're reading it in The Juice*. We never pegged Urkel as the violent type, but rage can change people.
