WNBA star Brittney Griner, Tulsa Shock player arrested for assault
PHOENIX, Ariz. – Two WNBA stars have been arrested following a domestic assault.
Several people say they tried to break up the fight, but ended up calling police.
Griner and Johnson were both arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct.
Griner was key in helping the Mercury win the 2014 WNBA title and was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.
Johnson was a forward last year with the Tulsa Shock.
The pair announced their engagement late last summer.
