PHOENIX — Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner has entered into a
diversion agreement after being arrested on suspicion of assault following a
fight last week with her fiancee, fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson.
As part of
the agreement, Griner will plead guilty to disorderly conduct and must attend 26
weeks of domestic violence counseling. All charges will be dismissed if she
completes her counseling.
Johnson was also arrested in the incident. Johnson plays for the Tulsa Shock of the WNBA.
A statement from Griner’s lawyer said the fight stemmed from an “extremely stressful” past few months.
