ATLANTA (AP) - Ex-WNBA player and Olympic gold medalist Chamique Holdsclaw has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from an argument and shooting in November.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard says Holdsclaw pleaded guilty Friday to aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and other charges. The 35-year-old was sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to pay a $3,000 fine under the plea agreement.

Holdsclaw's attorney Ed Garland says his client "felt that to honestly accept what her actions were was best for everyone concerned.''

Holdsclaw was arrested after the confrontation in Atlanta with Tulsa Shock player Jennifer Lacy, who told police she was Holdsclaw's ex-girlfriend. Authorities said Holdsclaw broke Lacy's car windows with a bat and then fired a shot into it. No one was injured.
