WNBA player Deanna Jackson has been arrested and detained in Israel for assaulting an opponent in the car park following the national league title match, police said Friday. Jackson, who plays for the WNBA's Chicago Sky, was turning out for Anda Ramat Hasharon when she was arrested Wednesday night for attacking Elitzur Ramle guard Ina Gourevitch after the 81-68 defeat. The two players had got into a skirmish and shouted insults at each other toward the end of the game. Police said the clash spilled into the parking lot, where Jackson sought out Gourevitch and punched her, breaking her nose. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the 27-year-old Jackson was arrested and her passport was confiscated.
