Former WNBA player Chamique Holdsclaw made her first court appearance this morning in Fulton County. Holdsclaw turned herself into police Thursday after a warrant was issued for her arrest in connection with an altercation with a former female friend.
Fulton County Magistrate Judge Roy Roberts told Holdsclaw to post a $100K bond, she must also wear an ankle monitor, have no contact with the victim, and appear at her next court date on November 30, at 9 a.m.
Holdsclaw is facing a variety of charges including:
*2 counts Aggravated Assault
*Criminal Damage to Property 1st Degree
*Criminal Damage to Property 2nd Degree
*Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony
She also initially faced a charge of reckless conduct, however, that charge was declined to prosecute.
Holdsclaw was charged after a domestic violence incident Wednesday involving Jennifer Lacy who plays for the WNBA Tulsa Shock and who described herself as Holdsclaw’s former girlfriend. Lacy told police Holdsclaw followed her,as she drove her Range Rover to a friend’s house. Holdsclaw then got out of her car with a baseball bat and began smashing windows in Lacy’s SUV, who also said her car smelled of gasoline.
Holdsclaw then fired a handgun inside the SUV, and sped off.
Holdsclaw will be released once she makes bond and must wear an ankle monitor.
Chamique Holdsclaw played for the Atlanta Dream in 2009, Jennifer Lacy played for the Atlanta Dream 2008 and 2009.
