Ex-WNBA player Holdsclaw in jail on assault charge

ATLANTA - Former WNBA star and Olympic gold medalist Chamique Holdsclaw is in custody after being accused of shooting into a woman's car after using a bat to break its windows.

Atlanta police said Thursday that Holdsclaw followed the woman, Jennifer Lacy, to her car on Tuesday afternoon. WNBA spokesman Ron Howard says the 29-year-old Lacy plays for the Tulsa Shock.

No one was injured. Lacy identified the 35-year-old Holdsclaw as an ex-girlfriend and both played for the Atlanta Dream in 2009.

She was in custody Thursday night in Fulton County Jail. Her bond was set at $10,000 on one charge each of aggravated assault, second-degree criminal damage and reckless conduct.

A number for Holdsclaw listed in the police report went to voicemail and it was unknown whether she had an attorney.
