Former WNBA player indicted in aggravated assault
News

ATLANTA -- Fulton County District Attorney's officials say a former WNBA player and Olympic gold medalist is being indicted on charges stemming from a November 2012 shooting.

District attorney's spokeswoman Yvette Jones says a six-count indictment charges 35-year-old Chamique Holdsclaw with aggravated assault, criminal damage and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Holdsclaw was arrested after an argument with former Tulsa Shock player Jennifer Lacy, who told police she was Holdsclaw's ex-girlfriend. The two were also Atlanta Dream teammates in 2009. Police say Holdsclaw broke the windows to Lacy's car and shot at it. No one was injured.

After a late-November appearance in Fulton County Magistrate Court, Holdsclaw's attorney said he talked with Lacy and they were trying "to resolve the case in the best way possible."
