by at . Comments

Jantel Lavender, a rookie on the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks, has been accused of making like Charlie Sheen.

Based on documents filed with the L.A. County Superior Court this week, the fifth overall draft pick's ex-boyfriend (Adam Ashley) has been granted a restraining order against Lavender following a July 5 incident in which he alleges she threatened him with a knife.

Lavender is also accused of kneeing her ex so hard in the crotch that his private parts were "throbbing from the pain," while also slamming his head into a wall and choking him.

The 6'4" forward must stay at least 100 yards away from Ashley, and has filed a restraining order of her own in response, saying Adam once tried to punch her. A court date has been set for August 30.

Lavender attended Ohio State and averages 7 points per game for the Sparks. She's shooting 51% from the field.
