Tulsa Shock forward Glory Johnson was arrested Wednesday evening along with her fiancee Brittney Griner according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, per the Arizona Republic.

The sheriff's office says both Johnson and Griner were arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct complaints. 

Johnson was the Shock's third-leading scorer last season at 14.7 points per game. The 2015 WNBA season begins in June.

Statement from Tulsa Shock president Steve Swetoha:

“We are aware of the reports out of Phoenix regarding our player Glory Johnson.  We are in the process of gathering information at this time.  Of course our first concern is for Glory's well-being and health.  We are looking into the matter further and have no other comment to make at this time.”

Johnson and Griner are scheduled to be married later this year.
