Same sex, same problems like heterosexuals. Ex-WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw is sitting in the Fulton County, Ga., jail Friday morning after being arrested on aggravated assault charges against her ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy, also a WNBA player.
Lacy, 29, told police she was working out at a church on Ponce de Leon Avenue Tuesday when Chamique Holdsclaw approached her and said she wanted to put some items in her car. She said she left the church and Holdsclaw followed her. She went to a friend’s home and then Holdsclaw got out of her car and started smashing the windows of Lacy’s Range Rover with a baseball bat. She then fired a gun inside the car.
Chamique Holdsclaw has been charged with aggravated assault, criminal damage to property and reckless conduct. She is being held on $10,000 bond. Holdsclaw is currently the spokeswoman for Active Minds, an organization that says it is “dedicated to empowering students to speak openly about mental health in order to educate others and increase help seeking.” Wow, some way to teach young people to resolve conflicts is with violence.
Domestic violence is real and cuts across socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, race and creed. No man or woman deserves to be terrorized by someone who claims to love them.
