TMZ reports the pair were allegedly attacking each other and police were called to their Phoenix home around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Officers observed “minor physical injuries” on both Brittney and girlfriend Glory Johnson, who also plays in the league.
“We are aware of this morning’s incident involving Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson and are working with the Phoenix Mercury and Tulsa Shock organizations to obtain more information,” the league said in a statement.
Griner, who led the Phoenix Mercury to the 2014 title, was released from jail at 4 a.m. Thursday.
It's not often the WNBA finds its way into the news so I'm sure they'll take what they can get here. One of the league's biggest stars is involved in a domestic violence case with her fiancee who is also in the WNBA. That's fucking gravy for the league. They gotta love this shit. Get em in the headlines. Get the ratings up. What they ought to do is make this stuff part of the games. Just have full contact, lesbian fights out there on the basketball court. Then maybe you'll puts some asses in the seats. (Probably not.)
