Chamique Holdsclaw, a former WNBA star, has been jailed for allegedly firing a bullet into the window of her former girlfriend's car and smashing the car's windows. Get the deets on the situation inside......
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...and WNBA Tulsa Shock player Jennifer Lacy (far left) found out the hard way. It's been revealed that Jennifer had been involved with former Atlanta Dream player Chamique Holdsclaw (center) for nearly four years, but their relationship soured last year.
Here's what reportedly went down: On Tuesday, Jennifer and Chamique bumped into each other at the gym and exchanged small talk. Sources say Jennifer is the one who ended the relationship and Chamique had not been handling it well.
As Jennifer was leaving the gym, she noticed that Chamique (who battles clinical depression and attempted suicide in 2006) was following her Range Rover so she drove to a friend's house.
Once they arrived, Chamique hopped out of her car with a baseball bat and began to smash the windows of Jennifer's Range Rover. Afterwards, she took out a gun and fired a round into the truck before hopping back in her own car and speeding off. After the incident, Jennifer says Chamique desperately tried to contact her but she didn't respond because she feared for her life.
Following the car attack, a warrant was issued for Chamique's arrest and she turned herself in on Thursday to the Fulton County Police Dept in Atlanta. Her bail was set at $10,000 on 3 charges: Aggravated Assault, Criminal Damages & Reckless Conduct.
News of the arrest sent shockwaves through the sporting community with many folks offering support to Jennifer and shaking their heads at Chamique (who also played on the gold medal-winning 2000 Olympic team).
Jennifer issued a statement through the Tulsa Shock saying,
"I want to thank my family, friends, fans and Shock family for their concern during this difficult time. I have never felt more love from my fans in supporting me."
And a source close to Jennifer adds, "She really hopes that Chamique gets the help she needs."
Chamique was released from jail on Friday and now has to wear an ankle monitor. She was ordered NOT to contact Jennifer Lacy and is now facing 2 counts of aggravated assault, 2 counts of damaging property and 1 count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. She heads back to court on Nov. 30. Drama!
