WNBA’s Clory Johnson Didn’t Expect Arrest after Brittney Griner Fight
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Glory Johnson didn't expect to be arrested after her fight with Brittney Griner at their home.
The WNBA All-Stars battled so intensely that the police were called. The now-married couple worked through the problem together and thought that would be enough. Instead, both were arrested, then the league suspended them for seven games each — more than a fifth of the season — without pay. Johnson said they are appealing.
Both are key players for their teams. Griner, a 6-foot-8 All-Star for the Phoenix Mercury, is the reigning WNBA Defensive Player of the Year. Johnson, a 6-foot-4 forward, is a two-time All-Star for the Tulsa Shock.
The Mercury are scheduled to play the Shock July 2 in Phoenix, and both will be able to play by then.
