Weed-smuggler WNBA player Brittney Griner landed in San Antonio’s Kelly Field Air Force Base around 5:40 a.m. EST following her release to US officials in a prisoner swap for Viktor Bout, who was serving a 25-year prison sentence for – among others – conspiring to kill Americans, in the United Arab Emirates.

Griner was in “very good spirits” upon touching back down in her home state of Texas, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said.

“Our team that flew back with her and met her on the ground tell us that she was in very very good spirits when she got off the plane, and appeared to be obviously in good health,” Kirby said on the “Today” show.
