Mercury star Brittney Griner has been arrested for disorderly conduct.
The basketball player's mugshot showed up on the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office's website Thursday morning with notes indicating she was taken into custody Wednesday night on suspicion of domestic violence, assault and disorderly conduct.
Griner's fiancee, Glory Johnson, also was arrested on similar charges. Johnson plays for the Tulsa Shock. The two got engaged last summer and are set to marry in two weeks. They appeared on TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta" in January. (Jump to video)
The Goodyear Police Department received a 911 call regarding a physical fight between two people at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
"Upon arrival officers found the two [Griner and Johnson] had been in a physical fight with one another resulting in minor injuries to both," according to Goodyear Police Department spokeswoman Lisa Kutis.
Griner told police that the stress of planning a wedding had taken its toll on her relationship with Johnson and that the two had been arguing every day.
According to the police report, Johnson's sister told officers that Johnson and Griner were "in the living room throwing items at each other."
"We couldn't get them pulled apart," Johnson's sister told responding officers.
Officers arrested both women and booked them into the Fourth Avenue Jail on misdemeanor charges. They have since been released.
"The Mercury organization is aware of an alleged incident involving Brittney Griner," Phoenix Mercury General Manager Jim Pitman said. "We are in the process of gathering additional information, and will have no further comment at this time."
The official statement from the WNBA was similar.
"We are aware of this morning's incident involving Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson and are working with the Phoenix Mercury and Tulsa Shock organizations to obtain more information," WNBA spokeswoman Dina Skokos said.
The Tulsa Shock also released a statement Thursday morning.
"We are aware of the reports out of Phoenix regarding our player Glory Johnson. We are in the process of gathering information at this time. Of course our first concern is for Glory's well-being and health. We are looking into the matter further and have no other comment to make at this time," Tulsa Shock president Steve Swetoha said.
The Mercury drafted Griner, 24, as the first overall pick in 2013. Her first game was on May 27, 2013 against the Chicago Sky.
Last year Griner, a two-time WNBA All-Star, helped lead the Mercury to the team's third championship. She also was named WNBA Defensive Player of the Year.
While at Baylor, Griner was the Big 12 Player of the Year for three consecutive years.
Griner is part of the It Gets Better Project and is an advocate to empower young people and help end bullying.
Griner's attorney, David Cantor, released this statement late Thursday afternoon:
"The last few months have been an extremely stressful time for Brittney and Glory. They will continue to work through these hardships together and ask that the media respect their privacy as they handle this family matter. Glory and Brittney sincerely apologize for the distraction this has caused their families, respective teams, the WNBA, sponsors and fans."
Johnson was drafted by the Shock as the fourth overall pick in 2012. Like Griner, she is a two-time All-Star.
The couple had just moved into the Goodyear home where they were arrested.
