The former University of Tennessee great was arrested last year in Atlanta after a violent confrontation with Jennifer Lacy and now faces six total charges:

Two for aggravated assault; one for criminal damage in the first degree; two for criminal damage in the second degree; and one for possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

If convicted, Holdsclaw could be sentenced to 65 years in prison.

It's unclear what provoked the attack from the ex-baller, but she and Lacy has recently broken up when it occurred.

According to reports, Holdsclaw initially went after Lacy with a baseball bat before opening fire on her while Lacy sat inside a parked vehicle.
