Ex-WNBA player Holdsclaw in jail on assault charge
ATLANTA (AP) - Former WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw is in custody after being accused of shooting into a woman’s car after using a bat to break its windows.
No one was injured. Lacy identified the 35-year-old Holdsclaw, one of the biggest stars in women’s college basketball history during her career at Tennessee, as an ex-girlfriend. They were teammates with the Atlanta Dream in 2009.
Holdsclaw was in custody Thursday night in Fulton County Jail. Her bond was set at $10,000 on one charge each of aggravated assault, second-degree criminal damage and reckless conduct.
A number for Holdsclaw listed in the police report went to voicemail and it was unknown whether she had an attorney.
Lacy issued a statement through the Shock.
“I want to thank my family, friends, fans and Shock family for their concern during this difficult time,” Lacy said. “I have never felt more love from my fans in supporting me.”
In September, Holdsclaw returned to her alma mater to discuss her fight with clinical depression, which included a suicide attempt during her pro career.
Holdsclaw recounted how she attempted suicide in 2006 as a member of the Los Angeles Sparks by overdosing on the medication she was taking for clinical depression. She also wouldn’t leave her Washington home for a few days in 2004, two years after the death of the grandmother who raised her.
She discussed these situations in a book, “Breaking Through: Beating The Odds Shot After Shot,” that came out earlier this year.
Holdsclaw led Tennessee to three consecutive national championships from 1996-98 before beginning a pro career that included six WNBA All-Star selections. She also played on the U.S. Olympic team that won the gold medal in the 2000 Games. She had 3,025 career points at Tennessee and remains the Southeastern Conference’s career scoring leader.
