Brittney Griner’s Booking Photo in Russia Has Been Released

A booking photo was released of WNBA player Brittney Griner.

Brittney is currently being detained in Russia. According to the Federal Customs Service of Russia, Griner was detained last month after a dog indicated drugs may be in her carry-on luggage.


A Russian press release said that a professional basketball player had been detained for allegedly having vapes that contained hashish oil in her airport luggage and that an investigation was underway.

The booking photo shows Brittney Griner holding up a piece of paper but it’s unclear what the paper says.

The Russian Federal Customs Service said Griner, who was not named in their statement via Russia’s Interfax News Agency, “was passing through the green channel at Sheremetyevo Airport upon arriving from New York.”

Russian authorities said it happened in February. Some have speculated she has been detained for three weeks.

Tough time to be stuck in Russia.
