Former NBA'er Javaris Crittenton

Former Washington Wizards player Javaris Crittenton -- the other guy in the Gilbert Arenas gun incident -- has been charged with murdering a 22-year-old woman.

Crittenton -- who has been bounced from the league -- is accused of shooting the mother of 3 on August 19 in Atlanta.  Investigators don't believe she was the intended target.  According to AJC.com, authorities believe Crittenton was gunning for someone who robbed him back in April.

The victim was shot in the hip and died in surgery.

You'll recall the famous incident in the Wizards locker room in 2009, when Arenas and Crirttenton pulled guns on each other.  Crittenton pled guilty to gun possession and was placed on 1 year's probation.

Crittenton is currently a fugitive and cops are looking for him.

Pay millions to thugs, you get headlines like this. You can take the thug out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto outa the thug. Just cuz you can ball, don't mean you a man, or an adult, or a role model. Most likely you're just a punk, and now a punk with $$$.

Yeah . . . good luck with that. ATL police SUCK at locating fugitives wanted for murder. Wisdom Jeffery - former Keyshia Cole associate - still wanted for murdering his wife and mother of his child on Aug 11, 2010, even after an AMW profile b/c ATL police didn't do their jobs right in the first place!

WTF! What land does this man live in where he can shoot at random people who robbed him and then hit an unintended target? Life is not the movies, where people have shootouts in the street, who does that? He is ridiculous and I hope they lock his ass up( I'm assuming his guilt since the police have enough evidence to charge him). He clearly had that gun illegally because there is no way he should have been Allowed to own a firearm.

I really want to know what his defense will be when they catch him.

At 6 foot 5 inches, 200 lbs, he should be real easy to find. Can't believe he is only 23 years old. The fact that he went to a Christian accadamy didn't seem to help him.

It was only a matter of time. The family of the murdered girl should sue DC for not putting this dumb-a** thug away when it should have.

So many people are at a loss because of this problem. I would suggest that everyone find a really good lawyer. I recently had a similar issue with a different medical procedure and I used an great law firm. I would suggest those involved in the hip recalluse them as well.
