Detroit Shock Center Kara Braxton Suspended After DUI Arrest

Comments (0)

It’s not just male athletes that get busted for driving under the influence.

Kara Braxton, center for the WNBA’s defending champions, the Detroit Shock, has been given a six game suspension after she pleaded guilty to a charge of DUI during the offseason.

The league made the announcement regarding Braxton’s suspension on June 5, one day before the WNBA season opener in which the Shock faced the Los Angeles Sparks (even without Braxton, Detroit won 81-52). Last year, Braxton averaged 8.9 points and 5.1 rebounds in 33 games.

Braxton is no stranger to suspension. In 2007, she was suspended for another DUI arrest. She was an All-Star that year. She was also suspended in 2008 for her role in a fight between Candace Parker and Plenette Pierson.
