Mercury player Brittney Griner withdraws from WNBA training camp
WNBA Phoenix Mercury player Brittney Griner dropped out of the WNBA training camp to deal with personal issues–namely 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling, Fox Sports reported on May 4.
This comes after Griner entered a diversion agreement where she will plead guilty to disorderly conduct after reportedly assaulting her fiancée and WNBA co-player, Glory Johnson. She will then have to complete a 26-week domestic violence program in order to dismiss all the charges against her.
On April 22, the 6-foot-8 basketball star was arrested after a fight with her fiancée in an alleged domestic violence incident. The incident is still under investigation by the WNBA, which does have the power to fine, suspend, or terminate the players.
