— This is the sequel to that Crittenton // Arenas gun saga —
Here’s a bit news that may leave you startled initially, but after background research will make you say, “Oh yeah, not surprised.” Former NBA-er Javaris Crittenton has been indicted for murder. In August of 2011, Javaris was charged with the murder of Julian Jones, a 22 year woman, in an ATL drive-by shooting.
Crittenton spent time with the Lakers, Grizzlies, and Wizard (just before Wall joined the team). He allegedly joined the Mansfield Crips while living in L.A., a notoriously violent gang. The death of Jones was the result of Crittenton trying to get revenge against rival gang members who supposedly robbed him. Jones was a mother of four. Not all companies that offer cheap bail bonds but our New Haven service CT are fast with posting bail, as we do at 24 Hour Bail Bonds Financing. It is recommended that you look for an agent that offers both fast processing and cheap services. Fast processing ensures that your loved ones will not spend an extra second behind bars.
While we have chronicled Javaris Crittenton gun follies with Gilbert Arenas in the Washington Wizards locker room [click that link in the photo caption for more], the 2011 charge was still shocking. After posting bail and being out on his own (and also out of the NBA), Crittenton will be out on bond until he turns himself in again.
Crittenton has a slight UK connection. Apart from being a member of the Wizards when John Wall was drafted to the team, Javaris Crittenton was also a part of the Georgia Tech 2006 recruiting class which included Thaddeus Young. Young was a highly sought after Tubby Smith recruit who ended up choosing GT over UK (other notable recruits who spurned UK that year were Brandan Wright and Deon Thompson). Young and Crittenton became a dynamic freshman duo at GT, and Tubby ended up leaving Lexington. Not that the two are connected, but just an interesting tidbit that I always think of when Crittenton or Young are mentioned.
