Why Has the WNBA’s Brittney Griner Been Detained in Russia Since February?
Since 2015, Brittney Griner has been traveling to Russia in the offseason to play basketball. It’s a common practice for WNBA players, who stand to make substantially more money than they do playing in the states. But sometime in February, she was detained at an airport near Moscow, when Russian Federal Customs Officers say they found hashish oil in her luggage. Now the world is pulling for her safe return home. Inside Edition Digital’s Stephanie Officer has the details.
