From being madly in love…to throwing punches! WNBA superstar Brittney Griner and fiancée/WNBA star Glory Johnson got into an alleged physical altercation, which resulted in BOTH of them receiving a mug shot. Get the deets inside….
It was all love back in August when WNBA superstar Brittney Griner (above) proposed to her girlfriend (now fiancée) WNBA star Glory Johnson (below). Now, the two are fighting…and getting physical!
According to ABC 15 in Phoenix, Brittney and Glory got into a serious altercation at their house in Goodyear, Arizona, which escalated into the two attacking one another. The cops were called and the two were hauled off to the 4th Avenue Jail in downtown Phoenix at 4 a.m. this morning for assault and disorderly conduct. They were later released.
TMZ got a hold of the police report, which details how the fight went down. They report:
Brittney told cops the two had been fighting for days and were having serious “relationship issues.”
As for the specific incident, cops say there were several people at the home when Brit and Glory began to argue — and the fight turned physical.
Cops say Brittney admitted to throwing a dog bowl at the wall — and then the two began fighting. Glory’s sister eventually called police because people “couldn’t get them pulled apart” and she didn’t want anyone to get hurt. When cops arrived, officers say Brittney had several cuts — and a bite wound. Glory was bleeding from the lip.
We wonder what type of “relationship issues” they’re having because just two days ago Brittney, a two-time WNBA All-Star, posted this heartfelt tribute to Glory on her Instagram, dubbing her as her Queen:
EveryDay Every Second! I fall for you like I fell way back before I had the nerves to even approach you! @missvol25 My Queen My Rock My Universe!!!!! @missvol25 #JohnsonGriner #JGFamily #LovingLifeOnceMore #Love

Brittney plays for the Phoenix Mercury, and following news that she had been arrested, the team’s Executive Vice President and General Manager Jim Pitman released a statement about the incident that reads, “The Mercury organization is aware of an alleged incident involving Brittney Griner. We are in the process of gathering additional information, and will have no further comment at this time.”
Glory’s team (Tulsa Shock) also released a statement via their Twitter:

We hear they were planning to trek down the aisle to the alter next month. We wonder if this will just be one of their “bumps in the road” and continue with the wedding, or will they call it off.
