Basketball fans will remember Javaris Crittenton from his infamous personal dispute with then- Washington Wizards teammate Gilbert Arenas inside the team’s locker room back during the 2009-2010 NBA season. This past Tuesday, however, Crittenton has seemingly gotten himself into deeper trouble after being indicted on murder and gang-related charges in Atlanta, Georgia.
Crittenton, 25, and his cousin, Douglas Gamble, were charged in a 12-count indictment by a Fulton County grand jury over the death of an Atlanta woman, Julian Jones, and the attempted murder of another man.
According to police, Crittenton shot and killed Jones while she was walking with a group of people back in August 2011. Authorities say that Crittenton then attempted to shoot and kill another man. The shootings are believed to be a gang-type retaliation after Crittenton was robbed of $50,000 in jewelry.
Crittenton, a native of Atlanta, played guard for Georgia Tech before being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2007. He was suspended for 38 games for pulling a gun on teammate Gilbert Arenas while playing for the Washington Wizards during the 2009-10 season. Crittenton received probation for the incident after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge.
A trial date for the murder and gang charges against Crittenton has not yet been set.
