Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner was arrested Wednesday on allegations of assault, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

The WNBA star was booked on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct, according to booking information.

Griner’s fiance, Glory Johnson has also been arrested for the same charges.

We have a few insights on what happened.  The cops were called to the home around 4:30pm yesterday, at the moment we don’t know who called the cops.  Griner and Johnson were in a physical confrontation that was serious enough that someone decided that the police needed to intervene. Since they both had injuries, both were arrested. We are working on what caused the fight.

Griner, 24, helped lead the Mercury to a WNBA title in 2014 and was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year as well as being named All-WNBA First Team.

Jail information indicates that Griner was released at about 4 a.m. Thursday.

Griner’s fiance, Glory Johnson has also been arrested for the same charges.
