It’s not a joke… NBA player and former Georgia Tech baller Javaris Crittenton has been charged with homocide, related to the shooting death of a 23 year old woman in Atlanta, GA.
Jones was walking with others near 2915 Macon Drive in southwest Atlanta around 10 p.m. Aug. 19 when she was shot, Campos said. Jones, a mother of three, was struck in the hip and later died during surgery.

You might remember the last time your heard of Crittendon, he and Gilbert Arenas were pulling guns on each other in the Washington Wizards’ locker room, which made national headlines and cost both players most of a season. He was drafted in 2007.
The crime was considered an accidental killing as Crittendon allegedly sought to retaliate for being robbed. Jullian Jones, the victim and a mother of three, was shot in the hip and died later during surgery.
