Chamique Holdsclaw, the former Tennessee basketball player who starred in the WNBA, is wanted by police for, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, busting up her ex-girlfriend’s vehicle with a baseball bat and then shooting at her.
The warrant is for aggravated assault, criminal damage to property and reckless conduct, police said.
Jennifer Lacy, who described herself as Holdsclaw’s former girlfriend, told police she was working out at a church on Ponce de Leon Avenue on Tuesday when Holdsclaw approached her and said she wanted to put some items in Lacy’s car.
According to an incident report obtained by Channel 2 Action News, as Lacy drove from the church she smelled gasoline inside her vehicle and noticed that Holdsclaw was following her.
Lacy, who is also a professional basketball player, said she drove to a friend’s house on Hemphill Avenue, at which time Holdsclaw got out of her car with a baseball bat and began smashing the windows in Lacy’s Range Rover.
After breaking the driver’s side window, a rear passenger’s window and the rear window, Holdsclaw produced a handgun, fired inside the SUV and fled the scene, the report said.
Police said they later recovered a 9mm shell casing at the scene. Lacy was not injured, police said.
