The WNBA announced that All-Star Riquna Williams has been suspended 10 games without pay following a domestic violence incident with her ex-GF back in December. Williams allegedly showed up at her ex’s Florida home, destroyed her car with a skateboard, forced her way into the house, hit her in the head several times and pulled her hair out.
The L.A. Sparks guard is facing 2 felony charges — burglary with assault or battery and aggravated assault with a firearm.
The WNBA said in a statement: “Based on the investigation, consultation, and a careful weighing of all the facts and circumstances, the WNBA determined that a ten-game suspension was appropriate. Among other factors, the WNBA took into account the nature and seriousness of the conduct at issue, including the involvement of a firearm. The WNBA will also require Williams to participate in counseling.”
