Holdsclaw indicted on aggravated assault charge

Ex-WNBA player, Olympic gold medalist Holdsclaw indicted on assault, weapons charges

ATLANTA (AP) — Prosecutors say former WNBA player and Olympic gold medalist Chamique (shuh-MEE’-kwuh) Holdsclaw is being indicted in a November 2012 shooting.

Fulton County District Attorney’s spokeswoman Yvette Jones said Wednesday that a six-count indictment charges the 35-year-old with aggravated assault, criminal damage and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Holdsclaw was arrested after an argument with former Tulsa Shock player Jennifer Lacy, who told police she was Holdsclaw’s ex-girlfriend. The two were also Atlanta Dream teammates in 2009. Police say Holdsclaw broke the windows to Lacy’s car and shot at it. No one was injured.

After a late-November court appearance, Holdsclaw’s attorney said he talked with Lacy and they were trying to resolve the case. The attorney said Wednesday he wasn’t aware of the indictment.

Holdsclaw is out on bond.
