According to reports, Phoenix Mercury star center Brittney Griner was arrested yesterday on assault allegations. Here is an excerpt from Azcentral.com:

Griner, 24, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct, according to booking information.

Griner was a key player for the Mercury, helping them win the WNBA title in 2014. She was named the league's Defensive Player of the Year, in addition to being named All-WNBA First Team.

Jail information indicates that Griner was released at about 4 a.m. Thursday.

Griner's fiancée, Glory Johnson, was also arrested on the same allegations, according to jail records.

One report by TMZ claims that the two were fighting each other:

WNBA superstar Brittney Griner -- and her WNBA star fiancee Glory Johnson -- were both arrested for allegedly attacking each other in Phoenix yesterday ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to Griner's home around 4:30 PM on Wednesday -- after receiving a call about a domestic dispute between the two women.

When cops arrived, we're told officers observed "minor physical injuries" on both Brittney and Glory.

More details to come later.
