Atlanta Dream guard Courtney Williams is apologizing this week for a video she posted to her YouTube channel that made light of a fight she was involved in earlier this year. In that video with her was teammate Crystal Bradford, former teammate Kalani Brown and others as they brawled it out in a parking lot near a food truck in the Atlanta area.
The fight happened in May after the WNBA season had already started.
“I want to sincerely apologize for the video posted yesterday,” Williams tweeted. “I would never want to represent myself or the organization in a negative way. I’m learning every day so I ask for grace as I’m growing. Again, I apologize to all attached and I will be better moving forward.”
Williams said in her since-deleted YouTube video that law enforcement was not involved and it does not appear that anyone in the footage was seriously hurt.
The league said in a short statement, via ESPN: “We just became aware of the video and are in the process of gathering more information.”
The Atlanta Dream are investigating.
“The behavior in the video is unacceptable and does not align with our values as an organization,” the Dream said, via ESPN. “We are taking this matter very seriously and working with the league to gather more information and determine next steps.”
Williams averaged a career-high 16.5 points and 6.8 rebounds this season with the Dream while earning her first trip to the all-star game. The 27-year-old will become a free agent in January.
Bradford averaged 8.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game this season, while Brown appaeared in only one game for the Dream this year.
