Brittney Griner arrest photo released by Russian media

Brittney Griner looking on

Russian state media is providing the first known photo of WNBA star Brittney Griner since her arrest in the country last month.

Russia’s primary state-run news channel released an apparent booking photo of Griner this week. The photo was aired Tuesday on CNN.

Here is a still capture of the photograph.

The seven-time WNBA All-Star Griner was detained on drug charges after reportedly being found with vape cartridges containing hashish oil in her luggage at a Moscow airport. Even more concerning is that Griner was in custody for a long time apparently before news of her arrest went public.

Griner is said to be facing up to ten years in prison. The one bit of good news though is that the United States government has gotten involved in her case.
