Las Vegas Aces guard Riquna Williams was arrested Tuesday after she was accused of committing domestic battery against her wife.

Williams was released from custody on Wednesday without having to pay bail. This was due to her lack of criminal history and ties to the community. However, she will be placed on alcohol monitoring because the arrest report mentioned concerns about her alcohol use.

“The court does have concerns regarding the extremely violent nature of the allegations in this case, that they were alleged to have occurred over an extended period of time,” Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Rebecca Saxe said via the Las Vegas Review-Journal during Williams’ initial court appearance on Wednesday morning.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Glen O’Brien also said that Williams was accused of “multiple violent allegations against her spouse. According to Fox 5 Vegas, the court filings against Williams show that nine charges have been filed.

Williams has a history of domestic violence allegations. In 2019, she was accused of breaking into a Florida home, attacking her ex-girlfriend and pointing a gun at a man. The WNBA suspended her for 10 games for this incident.

The league has not commented on her arrest at this time.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, please know that help is always available 24 hours a day. Please call 1-800-799-7233.
