0227-chamique-holdsclaw-gettyWNBA legend Chamique Holdsclaw has finally been hit with criminal charges for allegedly FIRING A GUN at her ex-GF's car last year ... and if convicted, she could spend 65 YEARS in prison.

We broke the story ... Holdsclaw -- considered one of the greatest players in WNBA history -- was arrested in Atlanta last year for a violent encounter with ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy.

According to the police report, 35-year-old Holdsclaw attacked Lacy's car with a baseball bat and then fired a gun inside the vehicle while Lacy sat in the driver's seat.

Now, Holdsclaw has officially been charged with 6 crimes -- including 2 counts of aggravated assault, 1 count of criminal damage in the first degree, 2 counts of criminal damage in the second degree, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

If convicted on all counts, Holdsclaw faces up to 65 years in state prison.

As for what provoked the alleged attack, sources close to Lacy tell us she believes Chamique was simply pissed that the two had broken up.

WHAT? How is that possible ... that's the same as a life sentence ... which people usually only get for murder. Was she released on bail or has she been in jail the entire time? I remember the original story, but I just can't be bothered to fact check everything TMZ throws at us.

I'm sure she was mostly peeved about not being able to fit comfortably or at all in that econo-car. Therefore, blasting caps in it.

Why can't people get Bonnie Raitts song:
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't,
You can't make your heart feel something it won't

Geeze, how many morons go to prison because they just can't understand something this simple?
