Earlier today, a Fulton County, GA grand jury indicted former WNBA all star Chamique Holdsclaw of five criminal counts, including two counts of aggravated assault, one count of first degree criminal damage, two counts of second degree criminal damage, and one count of possession of a firearm in commission of a felony, according to USA Today. These charges stem from an incident last November which involved Tulsa Shock forward Jennifer Lacy's vehicle which was broken in and shot into.
In addition, Holdsclaw faces up to 65 years in prison if found guilty of all counts according to TMZ.com. For the time being, Holdsclaw is free on a $100,000 bond.

After the Pepperdine's 70-51 loss to the Washington Huskies last night, Jayda Evans of the Seattle Times got an update on Jen Lacy from Waves coach Julie Rousseau.
Pepperdine coach Julie Rousseau, a former Los Angeles Sparks coach, has been in contact with Tulsa Shock F Jennifer Lacy..."We are in full support of Jen," Rousseau said after her team lost to UW on Tuesday. "I talked to Jen and she's doing well. That's all I'm concerned about is that she is healthy and safe. The Pepperdine family is supporting her and loving her through this tough time."
On the other end of this story, Flip Bondy of the New York Daily News put together a piece a couple of weeks ago putting some context around Holdsclaw's violent actions writing that, "...this does not come out of nowhere and the fact is that the former Christ the King superstar has had a volatile life and career. If she had been a man with equivalent basketball talent, Holdsclaw would long ago have become our city's greatest tragic sports figure."
While Lacy is the clear victim in this incident, it's clear that Holdsclaw needs support as well right now rather than the derision and mockery that she received around the internet in the immediate aftermath of the incident.

Ex-WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw who was arrested Thursday for an incident that turned violent with her ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lacy -- is set to be released from Fulton County jail after posting a $100,000 bond.
Per judge's order, Holdsclaw is forced to wear an ankle monitor and to stay away from Lacy.
Another interesting twist to this story, Atlanta police spokesman Officer John Chafee said that Lacy was indeed in the vehicle when Holdslcaw fired the gun.
Holdsclaw shot the gun in the rear driver's side door while Lacy was sitting in the driver's seat of her 2010 Range Rover.
Lacy released a statement late last night:
