Brittany Griner arrested in Russia

Reports coming out that Griner has been arrested after cannabis oil was detected in her luggage by a drug canine at the airport after landing from NY.
Considering the situation with Ukraine and the US stance, not sure I'd be travelling to Russia to play regardless, but this situation could be a real danger for Griner and she could be used as a political pawn.

NY Times:

The screening at the airport occurred in February, according to the Customs Service, raising the possibility that Griner has been in custody for at least several days.

According to the statement, a criminal case has been opened into the large-scale transportation of drugs, which can carry a sentence of up to 10 years behind bars in Russia. The basketball player was taken into custody while the investigation was ongoing, the officials said.
