WNBA Star Riquna Williams Arrested on Felony Domestic Battery Charges
Riquna Williams, a WNBA champion and point guard for the Las Vegas Aces, was arrested on July 23, 2023, on felony domestic battery charges.
The victim of the alleged assault is Williams’ wife, who has not been publicly identified. According to the arrest report, the victim told police that Williams punched, kicked, and strangled her, causing her to struggle to breathe.
The victim also had visible injuries, including scratch marks on her neck, a black eye, and swelling on her forehead.
Williams was released on her own recognizance without bail, but she is required to undergo alcohol monitoring. She has another court hearing scheduled for August 2, 2023.
The Las Vegas Aces have acknowledged Williams’ arrest and said that she will not be allowed to participate in team activities.
This is not the first time that Williams has been accused of domestic violence. In 2019, she was arrested for allegedly assaulting her ex-girlfriend, Alkeria Davis. Williams pleaded not guilty to those charges and was eventually acquitted.
It is unclear what will happen to Williams’ career as a result of her latest arrest. The WNBA has not yet announced any disciplinary action against her.
However, the charges against Williams are serious, and she could face significant jail time if she is convicted.
Who is Riquna Williams’ wife?
