Former NBA, Ga. Tech star arrested at F’ville home, charged with drug trafficking


By Christopher Dunn

Former NBA player and Georgia Tech star Javaris Crittenton's legal woes keep mounting. This time he was caught in his Fayetteville home.
Early Wednesday morning, DEA agents, federal marshals, and local police arrested Crittenton at his Fayetteville home and booked him into the Fulton County Jail. Crittenton allegedly conspired to deal cocaine and marijuana.
He was indicted last year for his role in the shooting death of an Atlanta mother of four in 2011. He had been on house arrest as he awaited trial for murder.
According to the district attorney's office, "Crittenton and the other suspects are accused of selling multi-kilo quantities of cocaine and several hundred pounds of marijuana" during a seven-month investigation dating to June 2012.
Crittenton won two state basketball titles at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy before playing one season at Georgia Tech. He was a first round pick of Los Angeles Lakers in 2007. He also famously was involved in a locker room confrontation involving a gun with then-Washington Wizards teammate Gilbert Arenas.
