Report: NBA Player Javaris Crittenton a Suspect in Murder of Mother of Four in Atlanta

1,981

Former Washington Wizards guard Javaris Crittenton has a warrant out for his arrest in connection to the murder of a 22-year-old woman, according to FOX-5 in Atlanta.

According to the report, police have obtained a murder warrant for the arrest of Crittenton for a drive-by shooting that killed Julian Jones, a mother of four. Police did say, however, that Jones wasn't the intended target.

The shooting is believed to be retaliation for a robbery in which Crittenton was reportedly the victim.

Crittenton was given probation in 2010 for a misdemeanor gun charge after he and former Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas got into a locker room skirmish in which guns were pulled. Both players were suspended for the rest of the 2009-10 season.

That was also the last time Crittenton played in the NBA, as he's spent the last couple of years in the D-League.
