The WNBA suspended two All-Stars players, Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson, for seven games over their domestic violence arrest in April, KXXV reported on May 16.
The suspension, which accounts for nearly one-fifth of the entire 34-week game season, is the longest suspension the WNBA has imposed on any players. The two, who got married this month, were arrested in April 22 following a domestic violence incident that happened at the house they bought. Griner pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, and entered a diversion agreement in which she has to complete 26 weeks of domestic violence program.
WNBA President Laurel Richie says the move was undertaken to, “protect the league and uphold its values.”
