Brittney Griner to attend 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling.
BANGIN BAES: WNBA Stars Brittney Griner & Fiancée Glory Johnson Arrested For Assault After Domestic Fight
Griner has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and will attend 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling under the terms of an agreement reached with Municipal Court in Goodyear, Ariz, on Tuesday. All charges will be dismissed if Griner completes the counseling program.
Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner was arrested for assault and disorderly charges in Phoenix on Wednesday. Her fiancee Tulsa Shock forward Glory Johnson was also arrested on the same charges.
Griner and her fiancee, fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson, were arrested at their home in Arizona on April 22 on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct. Griner voluntarily began counseling the day after her arrest, according to her attorney, David Michael Cantor.
Griner and Johnson, both 24, suffered minor injuries, and neither required medical attention.
In a statement, Brittney said she’s committed to making positive changes.
It is never OK for an argument to turn physical. This will never happen again, and I take my relationship and my responsibility as a role model seriously.
I am committed to making positive changes and I plan to use what I have learned to set a good example and help make a difference in the world around me.
In an Instagram post, Glory Johnson said she and Brittney have reconciled and they’re still planning to tie the knot next month.
WE’RE OK! @brittneygriner and I are home, injury-free, and still wedding planning! We know we must set better examples, even during the most trying times, and we are EXTREMELY sorry for all the negative attention we brought to ourselves, our family, and the league. We are actively seeking help in order to do BETTER. Thanks for all the Love, Support, and Prayers that were sent our way. #LoveLife #StillBlessed #WorkInProgress #NobodysPerfect
Welp. I wish them the best.
