Note that the original article posted did not call her Ms. - two posters did.
The only articles I found discussing the incident used the title of Mrs. Johnson.
Like in this article:
As if the Mavericks didn't have enough problems with their 20-point loss at Phoenix Tuesday — only the third loss all season of 20 or more points — Cassandra Johnson, wife of coach Avery Johnson
got into a fracas with a couple of fans she believed were standing too often and inhibiting her view. Reports have witnesses saying she took a couple of swings at the woman and actually made contact with the man, then sought out security. The couple filed a misdemeanor assault charge against Mrs. Johnson
. In the process, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban
, Mavs director of security Jim Colleran, strength and conditioning coach Bob Hackett and reserve center D.J. Mbenga also entered the stands — which could prompt consequences from the league pending investigation.
