Brittney Griner, Glory Johnson wed weeks after assault arrests

Two weeks after they both were arrested for allegedly assaulting each other, WNBA players Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson were married at a resort in Phoenix on Friday.

Johnson posted a photo of the couple during their wedding ceremony to her Instagram account. The couple announced their engagement in August, and indicated after their April 22 arrests they were still planning to get married as scheduled on May 8.

Last week, Johnson posted a photo of herself and Griner smiling to Instagram with a caption that stated they were moving on from the incident.

"We know we must set better examples, even during the most trying times, and we are EXTREMELY sorry for all the negative attention we brought to ourselves, our family, and the league. We are actively seeking help in order to do BETTER."

Last week, Griner pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and will attend 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling under the terms of a diversion agreement reached with the Municipal Court in Goodyear, Ariz. All charges will be dismissed if Griner completes the counseling program.

Griner and Johnson were arrested at their home in Phoenix on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct. Griner voluntarily began counseling the day after her arrest, according to her attorney, David Michael Cantor.

Griner played a key role in helping the Phoenix Mercury capture last year's WNBA title. She finished second on the team in scoring behind Diana Taurasi, averaging 15.6 points and eight rebounds per game. 

Johnson, who plays for the Tulsa Shock, averaged 14.7 points and 9.2 rebounds per game last season.
