OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Glory Johnson’s attorney says she has entered a not guilty plea in Surprise, Arizona, court in her domestic violence case involving fellow WNBA star Brittney Griner.

Johnson, an All-Star last season with the Tulsa Shock, and Griner, an All-Star this season for the Phoenix Mercury, were arrested on April 22 at their home in Goodyear, Arizona, on misdemeanor charges of assault and disorderly conduct. Prosecutors in both Goodyear and Maricopa County, Arizona, dismissed the case against Johnson.

Brian Russo, Johnson’s attorney, said the prosecutor in Surprise picked up the case and filed the charges.

Griner and Johnson were married on May 9, three weeks after they were arrested. Griner filed for an annulment on June 5, a day after Johnson announced she’s pregnant.
