One of the world’s greatest WNBA players, Chamique Holdsclaw, pleaded not guilty in a case against ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy. Last year in Atlanta, Chamique was in a violent altercation between her and her girlfriend, which eventually resulted in Chamique being slapped with some fairly hefty charges, including criminal damage in the first degree, criminal damage in the second degree, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. She pleaded not guilty to all those charges earlier this morning.
According to TMZ: Holdsclaw — who’s currently free on bond — was charged with the laundry list of crimes last month. We broke the story … Holdsclaw — considered one of the greatest players in WNBA history — was arrested in Atlanta last year for a violent encounter with ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy. According to the police report, 35-year-old Holdsclaw attacked Lacy’s car with a baseball bat and then fired a gun into the vehicle’s backseat while Lacy sat in the driver’s seat.
Holdsclaw is currently free on bond; however,depending on the outcome of the case, she may be sentenced to jail time. Chances are Chamique will get off by some strange twist of fate. BUT if she is convicted of all accounts, this WNBA star could be facing up to 65 years in jail! Yikes. That is a crazy amount of time to be locked out. How do you think the case will turn out? Hopefully she has a rockin’ lawyer!
The reason for all this drama? According to TMZ, Chamique was just super pissed that her and GF broke up! TMZ says: As for what provoked the alleged attack, sources close to Lacy tell us she believes Chamique was simply pissed that the two had broken up.
