KHIMKI — US basketball player Brittney Griner arrived in a court on the outskirts of Moscow on Friday and faced a drug royalties trial that could see her face in prison for up to 10 years.

A 31-year-old athlete who arrived at Kimki City Court with a handcuff was seen wearing a Jimi Hendrix T-shirt. She was accompanied by three people and was attended by staff from the US Embassy.

A woman was hand-locked down the hallway in the building. Cameras were not allowed in court.
