Update on Chamique Holdsclaw’s Assault Charges

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!
