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.

Lock her asss up. I don't give a damn how heated the argument got. The girl was in the car...she should have left. That bullet could have wounded her...even worse KILLED her. If you're not a WNBA fan don't comment with that BS "who is this".

Wow ...    

Of course if she gets 65 years, they will scream discrimination, how many straight couples get that amount of time for the same or similar act of violence? Umm, Chris Brown (even though he didn't use a gun, he could have killed Rihanna)? OJ? Robert Blake?

Good, needs some accountability for shooting at or around people.
But...how many years in prison do those two stupid f-cking detective cops face for shooting two innocent Latina women....unprovoked....because they "mistakenly" thought they were a black man?
You know, the cops who shot a 71 year old woman in the back...prison time to come?
