Chamique Holdsclaw: Latest News on Former WNBA Star's Arrest
Former WNBA star, Olympic gold medalist and University of Tennessee standout Chamique Holdsclaw has been arrested in Atlanta following a domestic incident with ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy.
The 35-year-old Holdsclaw is being held on charges including aggravated assault, second-degree criminal damage and reckless conduct after allegedly following Lacy after she left the gym and drove to a friend’s house, then smashing the windows of Lacy's Range Rover with a baseball bat. Holdsclaw is also reported to have fired shots from a handgun into the empty car before fleeing the area. Police recovered a 9mm casing from the crime scene. Lacy was unharmed.
Lacy released a statement through the Tulsa Shock. From the team's website:
"I want to thank my family, friends, fans and Shock family for their concern during this difficult time. I have never felt more love from my fans in supporting me."
Holdsclaw, one of the biggest stars in women's college basketball history (and still the SEC's all-time leading scorer) has talked publicly about her battles with clinical depression. The six-time WNBA All-Star and three-time NCAA champion chronicled her mental health issues in a book, "Breaking Through: Beating The Odds Shot After Shot," published in 2012. She is a spokeswoman for Active Minds, an organization devoted to mental health awareness.
Lacy and Holdsclaw were teammates in 2009 as members of the Atlanta Dream.
Bail was set at $10,000 cash or $100,000 bond. It is unknown whether or not Holdsclaw has retained an attorney.
As of this writing, she remains in custody.
