Ex-WNBA Star Chamique Holdsclaw Charged With Domestic Abuse After Altercation With Ex-Girlfriend (Video Inside)
Former WNBA player Chamique Holdsclaw turned herself in last night to authorites after an arrest warrant was filed on her following a domestic violence dispute.
The 35-year-old Chamique played 12 seasons in the WNBA, including one year with the Atlanta Dream, in 2009. The Atlanta Journal Constituion reported that Chamique was charged with aggravated assault, criminal damage to property and reckless conduct, in relation to a dispute with her ex-girlfriend, 29-year-old Jennifer Lacy.
Jennifer alleges she was working out at a church on Tuesday when Chamique approached her and said she wanted to put some items in Jennifer’s car. As Jennifer drove from the church, she smelled gasoline inside her vehicle and noticed that she was being followed by Chamique. At that point, Jennifer drove to a friend’s home, at which time Chamique got out of her car with a baseball bat and began smashing the windows in Jennifer’s Range Rover. Jennifer also says that after breaking the driver’s side window, a rear passenger’s window and the rear window, Chamique pulled out a handgun, fired inside the SUV and fled the scene. Her bond was set at $10,000.
There’s never an excuse for domestic violence, but there might be one in this case. Listen to Holdsclaw speak about her battles with depression.
