NEW YORK (AP) — The WNBA has suspended Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson seven games each because of their domestic violence arrest last month.

The two All-Stars were arrested April 22 on suspicion of assault after they fought in a home they recently bought. Griner and Johnson got married last week in Phoenix.


The league on Friday cited the integrity of the game in handing down the punishment.

Griner has entered a diversion agreement in which she pled guilty to disorderly conduct and will attend 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling. All charges will be dismissed if she completes her counseling.

Johnson’s case has been transferred to a county court and is pending.

  1. You can cheat to win the super bowl and knock out your girlfriend in an elevator and. . . hmmmm this punishment seems a bit harsh for these ladies. Seven games each?! How did they come up with that number?
