WNBA: Chamique Holdsclaw Arrested For Shooting At Ex-Girlfriend

Former WNBA and University of Tennessee star Chamique Holdsclaw is in custody after being accused of shooting into a an ex-girlfriend’s car after using a bat to break its windows.
Atlanta police said Thursday the incident happened Tuesday after Holdsclaw followed 29-year-old Jennifer Lacy to her car. No one was injured. Lacy identified the 35-year-old Holdsclaw as an ex-girlfriend. They were teammates with the Atlanta Dream in 2009. Lacy now plays for the Tulsa Shock.
Jennifer Lacy claimed that Holdsclaw approached her in a parking lot Tuesday and asked to put some things in her car. Lacy smelled gasoline in her Range Rover as she drove off and saw that Holdsclaw was following her. Lacy said she drove to a friend’s house, where Holdsclaw got out of her car and began smashing the windows of Lacy’s SUV with a baseball bat. According to reports, she pulled a handgun and fired inside the Range Rover, then left. Police said they recovered a 9mm shell casing at the scene and local news reports that police said she may have been trying to ignite gasoline in the car by firing the gun.
Holdsclaw was in custody Thursday night in Fulton County Jail. Her bond was set at $10,000 on one charge each of aggravated assault, second-degree criminal damage and reckless conduct.
Lacy issued a statement via twitter:
"I want to thank my family, friends, fans and Shock family for their concern during this difficult time," Lacy said. "I have never felt more love from my fans in supporting me."
Holdsclaw has been battling clinical depression, which included a suicide attempt during her pro career.
Holdsclaw attempted suicide in 2006 as a member of the Los Angeles Sparks by overdosing on the medication she was taking for clinical depression. She also wouldn't leave her Washington home for a few days in 2004, two years after the death of the grandmother who raised her.

Wozzers. Keep everyone involved in your prayers.

Welcome To Dallas Cowboyland: Where There's No Punishment For Your "Crimes"

What's the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Better known as...watching the Dallas Cowboys as an organization (not just players) and expecting different results. Don't be fooled (again) by the win over the Eagles this past Sunday. The offense only scored 17 points. Without the D...we would have lost to NICK FOLES! That is a once in a season, 3 TD game by any defense/special team. Changes have to be made and players who underperform or commit bonehead penalties need to be held accountable. Jerry puts on a facade at every post game conference he does saying he is all in on his QB, his team, and his coach. Even after repeated lackluster performances and coaching debacles. Well he could learn a little something something from the Atlanta Falcons top guns.

Regardless of their 8-1 record, the Atlanta Falcons made a promise to evaluate their team each week and get rid of those who weren’t getting the job done.

Well…if players thought they were just words, the release of Ray Edwards on Monday put those words into action.

Not sure if you heard.
