This week, police arrested Phoenix Mercury star Brittney Griner and her fiancée Glory Johnson, of the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock, on assault and disorderly conduct charges. The incident is considered a domestic violence offense.

According to reports, Griner told police the couple was having relationship problems. Domestic violence involving athletes has been in the news a lot lately, but people don’t often think or talk about it when both people involved are women.
