Former WNBA All-Star Cappie Pondexter has reportedly disappeared after being arrested on battery charges. According to Madeline Kenny of the Chicago Sun Times, Pondexter was arrested Tuesday for battery.
Police were alerted that Pondexter had not been heard in days and she was declared a missing person. It was eventually discovered that Pondexter did not have her ID and refused to give her name to the police, leading to her being booked as "Jane Doe" according to TMZ. Because of this, the police filed a missing person's report on Wednesday evening.
While news of Pondexter's arrest indicated that she had been found, Pondexter was reportedly missing after she was released from police custody Thursday, her spokesman told TMZ.
The WNBPA sent out a tweet asking that anyone with information about Pondexter's disappearance contact the authorities.
Details of the alleged incident that led to Pondexter's arrest are rare, according to TMZ.
Pondexter, 37, has served 13 seasons in the WNBA. She played for five teams including Phoenix Mercury, New York Liberty, Chicago Sky, Los Angeles Sparks and Indiana Fever.
