Brittney Griner Arrest Details Surface

Yesterday news broke that WNBA player Brittney Griner had been arrested in Russia on drug charges after a THC vape pen and cartridges were found in her luggage [click here if you missed that]. 

Turns out Brittney has been locked up for nearly 3 weeks...
American women's basketball great Brittney Griner has been detained in Russia for at least three weeks after the two-time Olympic gold medal winner and seven time WNBA All-Star was arrested at a Moscow airport for allegedly having a vape pen filled with hash oil.
Griner, 31, was detained last month while flying in to play for her Russian basketball team during the WNBA offseason, but there has been no confirmed date of when she was arrested. Her last communication was on February 5 when she posted a photo to Instagram of her and her Phoenix Mercury teammates.

Go here to see the pics of Russian authorities searching Brittney's luggage at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow. She is facing up to ten years in prison if convicted. 

Brittney's wife shared a post on Instagram last night thanking fans for their support but also asking for privacy at this time.
