She apparently threatened to shoot someone 18 times while holding a gun up to them. That is much different than a DUI.I understand your concern, and I'm NOT making any excuses for her or her behavior.
But you have to remember that she has been with the Sparks for several years, and all of the players and coaches are very comfortable with her as a teammate, and her presence in their locker room.
NFL player Ezekiel Elliott (Dallas Cowboys) was suspended by the Commissioner for 6 games several years ago for an off field incident that he was never formally charged for by a DA. The NFL has a problem with its players running afoul of the law (DUI, domestic violence, etc) regularly. No doubt the WNBA has policies and protocols in place to deal with matters of this nature. It's extremely rare for a current WNBA player to get arrested or charged with a crime.
Neither of the rookies have played with her. None of Alexis Jones, Chiney Ogwumike and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt either. That's 5/11 teammates, or almost half of the team. All of the coaches are new to Riquna too besides one assistant.
