Tulsa Shock WNBA star Jennifer Lacy, 29, released statements via her Twitter page this morning thanking her fans for their love and concern. “I want to thank my family, friends, fans and Shock family for their concern during this difficult time,” she tweeted. “I have never felt more love from my fans in supporting me.”
Lacy’s ex-girlfriend, former Dream star Chamique Holdsclaw, 35, was arrested Thursday night after turning herself into the Fulton County Sheriff’s office. She was released on $10,000 bond. A warrant had been issued for Holdsclaw, a mental health advocate, after she poured gasoline into Lacy’s Range Rover, broke out the car windows with a baseball bat and attempted to ignite the gasoline by firing an automatic weapon into the vehicle — while Lacy was still inside the SUV.
Holdsclaw was charged with aggravated assault, criminal damage to property and reckless conduct — but not attempted murder.
A friend told Sandrarose.com that Lacy and Holdsclaw broke up last year following an abusive 2-year relationship. Holdsclaw and Lacy began dating while they both played for the Atlanta Dream in 2009. In 2010, the Dream cut Lacy which, according to friends, upset Holdsclaw who could no longer exert her dominance over the 6 ft 3 in forward. Holdsclaw refused to show up for Dream practice a month later and she was waived by the team.
