Chamique Holdsclaw committed one of the worst girlfriend breakups in history by chasing down her girlfriend for ending their relationship, pulling a gun, and shooting up her car. The former WNBA great did just that and more back in 2012 (see my blog “Former WNBA Player Chamique Holdsclaw’s Assault on Ex Girlfriend” for all the details). Six official criminal charges have been filed against Holdsclaw for the attack on her ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy, also a former WNBA teammate.
Holdsclaw’s criminal charges include 2 counts of aggravated assault, 2 counts of second degree criminal damage, 1 count of first degree criminal damage, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. That’s a nasty breakup!
If found guilty of all charges, Chamique Holdsclaw could serve up to 65 years in jail.
The message of Holdsclaw story 1) be careful in who you date, 2) sulk at home by yourself, watch movies, eat ice cream etc. when you go through a break up, don’t resort to violence, and 3) hire one hell of a defense attorney if you rack up 6 criminal charges!
Rapper Flavor Flav lost control early Wednesday morning when he violently pushed his fiance down to the ground twice and reportedly with two knives in hand chased his fiance’s 17-year-old son around their Vegas house.
According to TMZ.com the police report stated the fight began with Flavor Flav’s fiancé accusing him of cheating on her. Flav became angry, ripped her earrings out and threw her to the ground. The teenage son tried to come to his mother’s aid. At that point the rapper grabbed two knives and turned his focus on the son, chasing him around the house into a locked room. Flavor Flav kicked the door down and threatened to kill the boy.
Flavor Flav posted the $23,000 bail and will return to court next week to address the charges of misdemeanor battery and felony assault with a deadly weapon. The rapper is denying the death threat allegations, as well as the assault with knives.
In most States, if Flavor Flav entered into a diversion program he would at minimum have to complete a domestic violence treatment program. If he is found guilty of domestic violence he will lose his right to bear a firearm among other penalties. If he is found guilty of a felony assault he will also lose his right to vote (perhaps 1 less vote for Obama).
I’m guessing Flavor Flav’s fiance is having second thoughts on marriage especially if Flav did threaten her son at knife point saying he was going to kill him. The ring may be in the trash or more likely on Ebay. Money in her pocket…yeahhhhh boooyeeee!!!! Or maybe we will see this couple on the next season of Couples Therapy, always entertaining to have volatile people on that show.
