On Wednesday a Fulton County grand jury indicted former WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw on 6 charges including aggravated assault for the November attack on her ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lacy. Holdsclaw faces 65 years in prison if she is found guilty on all the charges.
Holdsclaw, who played for the Atlanta Dream in 2009, is accused of stalking Lacy, vandalizing Lacy’s Range Rover, pouring gasoline in the SUV and firing a handgun into the vehicle while Lacy was inside.
From Rachel George of USA Today (via Yahoo Sports):
Holdsclaw, 35, faces two counts of aggravated assault, one count of criminal damage in the first degree, two counts of criminal damage in the second degree and one count of possession of a firearm in commission of a felony. [...]
“We’re still working with the DA’s office in Fulton County,” Holdsclaw’s attorney, Patrick Sullivan, told USA TODAY Sports Wednesday, adding that he could not comment further at this time.
Sullivan said he hoped to resolve the case without going to trial.
In her autobiography released last year, Holdsclaw revealed she was diagnosed with clinical depression and had attempted suicide.
Lacy has reportedly moved on with Washington Mystics star Monique Currie.
