(AP) — Chamique Holdsclaw is getting her life back in order after being trapped in what felt like a “mental prison” following her arrest last November. The former WNBA star, Olympic gold medalist and Tennessee All-American was treated for depression until being diagnosed with bipolar 2 disorder after breaking the car windows of WNBA player Jennifer Lacy with a bat and firing a shot into the vehicle. Lacy told police she was Holdsclaw’s ex-girlfriend.
