Wednesday another Phoenix basketball player got into trouble with the law. This time it was Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner. She was booked into a Maricopa County jail along with her fiance Glory Johnson, who plays for the Tulsa Shock, for a fight between the two.
Officers were called out when the two started throwing things at each other. By the time the police arrived the two were involved in a full on fist fight. Griner was charger with assault and disorderly conduct fighting.
The arrest was a shocker to many but it raises the question, what is going to happen to Griner? How much trouble, if any will she be in with the team? Domestic violence is domestic violence and last year when back up running back Johnathan Dwyer was arrested for domestic violence many fans were happy that the Cardinals didn't waste any time punishing him. But Griner is a star and how are fans going to react when the Mercury go from the best team in the WNBA to average at best with out her?
