Glory Johnson In Hot Water With Judge

WNBA player Glory Johnson’s epic fight with former spouse Brittney Griner is coming back to haunt her.

An Arizona judge issued a warrant for Glory Johnson’s arrest for failing to comply with the terms of her sentence from a domestic violence incident two years ago, BOSSIP has learned.

Johnson pled guilty in 2015 to disorderly conduct (domestic violence) stemming from a brawl with her then fiance, Brittney Griner. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss her assault charge as part of a plea deal.

Under the deal, Johnson was ordered to pay a $236 fine and attend six months of domestic violence counseling. However, a judge found that Johnson ignored her sentence and he issued the warrant, according to court docs.

Johnson’s lawyer was able to persuade the judge to drop the warrant at a hearing last month, but now Johnson has to appear next month to explain why she didn’t follow through with the sentence and possibly face additional sanctions.

Once considered the power couple of women’s professional basketball, Griner and Johnson were married for less than a year, and are parents to year old twins Ava Simone and Solei Diem, whom Johnson cares for while Griner plays professionally overseas. They divorced in 2016.

We’ve reached out to Johnson’s lawyer for comment.
