Former Yellow Jacket Hoopster Arrested


Georgia Tech has had some issues of late with their football program and now ex-hoopster Javaris Crittenton.  

With a little help from Butch Davis and Nevis Shapiro, the Jackets have managed to literally fly under the radar.  That may be about to end.

Crittenton was in police custody after being arrested at a Southern California airport to board a flight to Atlanta, where his lawyer said he would go to surrender in a murder case.

Crittenton, who was suspended from the league for having guns in a locker room with teammate Gilbert Arenas, was arrested Monday evening at John Wayne Airport in Orange County after checking in for a redeye Delta Air Lines flight, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. She said he was with a male companion who was not arrested.

Crittenton was taken to a Los Angeles police station where he was booked on suspicion of being a fugitive from justice.  

Crittenton, 23, was wanted by Atlanta police in connection to the Aug. 19 shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, a mother of four young children, as she was walking with two men. Police believe one of the men with her was the target.
