WNBA Suspends All-Star Guard Riquna Williams 10 Games For Domestic Violence

Riquna Williams suspended 10 games
WNBA: "Based on the investigation, consultation, and a careful weighing of all the facts and circumstances, the WNBA determined that a ten-game suspension was appropriate. Among other factors, the WNBA took into account the nature and seriousness of the conduct at issue, including the involvement of a firearm."
Los Angeles Sparks: "As an organization, we abhor violence of any kind and specifically take domestic violence allegations very seriously. We will provide whatever resources we are allowed to help Riquna learn and grow from this unfortunate situation."

The WNBA has suspended Los Angeles Sparks guard Riquna Williams 10 games for domestic violence charges that allege she punched ex-girlfriend Alkeria Davis in the face and pulled her hair after Davis opened the front door of her house in December 2018.

The bizarre story also alleges that after a man had broken up the fight between Williams and Davis, Williams went to her car and pulled out a gun before aiming it at the man and muttering ‘you’ll get all 18’ before escaping the scene.

The police run-in is not the first for Williams. She was arrested in April on charges of burglary, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The former All-Star has spent seven seasons in the WNBA and is averaging 11.5 points for the Sparks in 2019, coached by former NBA Champion Derek Fisher.

The 10-game suspension is the second-longest in league history, with Rhonda Mapp infamously receiving a two-year ban from the WNBA in 2003 for violating the league’s drug policy.

The league is also currently enveloped in another ugly domestic violence incident, with Natasha Howard’s wife alleging Howard stabbed her.
