The basketball community is hoping for good news this after WNBA legend Cappie Pondexter was reported missing.
The 37-year-old was last seen on Monday and, according to Lyndsey D’Arcangelo of The Athletic, a police investigation is underway as no one has heard from her since.
To make matters worse, her phone and wallet were found at her home.
The WNBPA, the league’s players association, has now shared the reports about Pondexter.
TMZ Sports later reported that she wasn’t missing, but actually under arrest for assaulted someone.
“The LAPD tells us the 37-year-old was taken into custody Tuesday and booked on a misdemeanor battery charge.
We’re told Pondexter refused to ID herself to cops so she was booked as “Jane Doe” … and was held in jail until she was released earlier Thursday.
Now, multiple law enforcement officials tell us the woman has been identified as Pondexter.
Details of the alleged incident are unclear … we’re working on it.”
TMZ Sports would update the story once again by stating friends are still concerned for her safety after she was released.
“Another sad twist … we spoke with Cappie’s rep, Chuck Walton, who tells us Cappie has gone missing again after she was released from police custody.
We’re told Walton and other people close to Cappie believe she walked off somewhere in Downtown Los Angeles and they are concerned for her well-being.”
Cappie Pondexter was the No. 2 pick in the 2006 WNBA Draft, going to the Phoenix Mercury. With fellow all-time great Diana Taurasi, the Mercury would win WNBA titles in 2007 and 2009.
