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.

WNBA history?? That's what all of 10yrs.. they make it sound like it's been many, many yrs..where's the attempted murder? Isn't that what it is when you shoot a gun at someone, or did the rules change again?

65 years but rapists are out in 3. Im not surprised. The state of Massachusetts threatened to pit me in jail for 30 days because I forgot to pay $10 for a dog license.... Yet repeat DUI offenders get a slap on the wrist with a suspended license, I love our justice system.
