ATLANTA -- Former Atlanta Dream player Chamique Holdsclaw was released from the Fulton County Jail on Friday night. 

The ex-WNBA star turned herself into police Thursday after a warrant was issued for her arrest on charges of aggravated assault, criminal damage to property, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and reckless conduct. The reckless conduct charge was later dropped.

According to a police report, Holdsclaw used a baseball bat to smash two windows of a car belonging to her ex-girlfriend and former Dream teammate Jennifer Lacy. Investigators said they recovered a spent 9mm casing from inside Lacy's car.

At Holdsclaw's first court appearance Friday morning, her lawyer asked for a lower bond.

"It's not happening," said Fulton County Judge Roy Roberts.

When Holdsclaw's lawyer cited his client's previously clean record and said she didn't pose a danger, the judge responded, "Not a danger? I find [it] frightening given the description of her conduct."

He ordered Holdsclaw to wear an ankle monitor and not to contact Lacy or come within 200 yards of her. 

The two played together with the Dream in 2009. Lacy currently plays for the WNBA's Tulsa Shock. Holdsclaw no longer plays for the WBNBA.

Her next court date is set for Nov. 30.
