Javaris Crittenton Claims Innocence On Murder Charges, Surrendering To Atlanta Police

Former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets player Javaris Crittenton will fly from Los Angeles to Atlanta to surrender to Atlanta police, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He's expected to arrive Tuesday morning, at which point he'll be arrested on charges of shooting and killing a woman while allegedly aiming for a jewelry thief.

His attorney, Brian Steel, told the AJC that Crittenton is innocent and wants to "clear his name."

Crittenton is wanted for the August 19 shooting of Jullian Jones, a 22-year-old mother of four. According to police, Crittenton shot her from a vehicle while trying to hit the perpetrator of an April robbery. Police have executed a search warrant on his home just south of Atlanta, but haven't yet come into contact with the former Atlanta prep star.

Nothing's going to bring Jones back, but you still find yourself hoping Crittenton didn't have any role in her death.
