Javaris Crittenton Arrested In Los Angeles For Murder Charge

Former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and NBA guard Javaris Crittenton turned himself in to FBI agents and Orange County police Monday night before boarding a Delta flight to Atlanta. He'll eventually be turned over to local police and face murder charges for the alleged shooting death of 22-year-old Jullian Jones earlier this month.

Here's an obviously unpleasant video of Crittenton waiting handcuffed in the back of a car:

He may need to first appear in Los Angeles federal court before heading to Atlanta. I'd assume because he crossed all sorts of state lines, though whether he did so before he was wanted for murder could have something to do with the decision process.

We could be in for a long, developing story, with Crittenton's attorney swearing innocence and pointing out the native Atlantan turned himself in.
