Over the weekend, WNBA star Brittney Griner was detained in Russia after officials said they found Hashish oil vape cartridges in her luggage.

The incident happened at the Sheremetyevo airport near Moscow.

She could face up to ten years in prison for this offense.

Brittney plays for the Phoenix Mercury and plays in Russia in the winter.

Her wife, Cherelle Griner, posted a message on Facebook about the incident.

She wrote, “Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated. I love my wife wholeheartedly, so this message comes during one of the weakest moments of my life. I understand that many of you have grown to love BG over the years and have concerns and want details. Please honor our privacy as we continue to work on getting my wife home safely.”
