Police: WNBA's Griner, fiancee Glory Johnson arrested
GOODYEAR, AZ - Phoenix Mercury standout player Brittney Griner and fiancee and fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson have been arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct following a fight at their home in a Phoenix suburb.
The two 24-year-olds were booked into jail in Phoenix following their arrests Wednesday and later released. Agents for the players did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Goodyear police spokeswoman Lisa Kutis says officers arrested Griner and Johnson after a fight between the couple turned physical. Kutis said no weapons were involved and that neither required hospital care for their minor injuries.
The pair announced their engagement late last summer.
Griner helped the Mercury win a WNBA championship this past September. Johnson plays for the Tulsa Shock.
