Police say Stephenson was taken into custody Sunday following a 5 a.m. fight with the woman in Brooklyn.
The woman was treated at a hospital for injuries sustained in a fall down a flight of stairs.
The New York Daily News was the first to report the arrest.
"We have been made aware of a situation involving Lance Stephenson early Sunday morning in Brooklyn," Pacers president Larry Bird said in a statement. "We are currently in the process of gathering information and will have further comments as we learn more facts."
Stephenson, 19, has been charged with third-degree assault and is awaiting arraignment, according to the Daily News.
The Brooklyn native was drafted with the 40th overall pick by the Pacers after one year at Cincinnati where he averaged 12 points, five rebounds and two assists.
Stephenson has had prior run-ins with the law, most notably he was charged with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl while in high school in 2008.
Another case of domestic violence by a professional athlete. In my experience these kinds of incidents tell you a lot about what kind of career a guy will have. No matter the talent it seems like they are ticking time-bombs for career derailment. Its too bad because I was rooting for this guy a little bit.
Apparantly, after he pushed her down the stairs he slammed her head into the bottom step...... Now I just hope the guy goes to prison.....
