Arrested at California Airport

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been arrested after trying to board an airplane in Orange County, CA.
Crittenton had checked in for a flight to Atlanta last night, where his lawyer said he was going to surrender in a murder case. He was taken to an L.A. police station and booked on suspicion of being a fugitive from justice, the FBI confirms to the Washington Post.
Javaris, who played for the Washington Wizards, was wanted for murder in the shooting death of 22-year-old Julian Jones.
As TMZ previously reported, cops believe Crittenton was not aiming at Jones -- but rather someone else in the area who may have robbed the former basketball player back in April.
