what a loser. You make all that money and still get involved in stuff a poor ass person would.

================================================== ========
--ATLANTA (AP)óPolice said late Friday that former NBA player Javaris Crittenton, who was once suspended by the league over guns in the locker room, has been charged with murder after a woman was shot on an Atlanta street.

Police spokesman Carlos Campos said police have secured a murder warrant for the arrest of Crittenton, who played at Georgia Tech, in connection with the shooting death of 22-year-old Jullian Jones on Aug. 19. Campos said Crittenton is not in custody and is wanted.

Atlanta police Maj. Keith Meadows told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday night that Crittenton is believed to be in the Los Angeles area. He said the FBI is involved in the investigation.

Jones, a mother of four, was walking with a group of people on the cityís southwest side when a dark-colored SUV drove by and she was shot by someone inside the vehicle, police said.

Investigators say they donít believe the woman was the intended target. Campos said the motive appears to be retaliation for a robbery in April, in which Crittenton was a victim, Campos said in a statement.

Messages left for an agent who has represented Crittenton were not immediately returned Friday night.

Crittenton most recently played in the NBA with the Washington Wizards and was involved in a gun altercation with Gilbert Arenas(notes). He is on the roster of the NBDLís Dakota Wizards.

Crittenton didnít play last season because of an ankle injury. He was given a 38-game suspension by the NBA after he and Arenas acknowledged bringing guns into the locker room following a dispute stemming from a card game on a team flight.

Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge on Jan. 25, 2010 and received probation. He wasnít re-signed by the Wizards.

The Charlotte Bobcats signed Crittenton to a non-guaranteed contract before last season but he was waived Oct. 15.

Crittenton was the 19th overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2007. He played little with Los Angeles and was sent to Memphis in the Pau Gasol deal his rookie year. He was traded to Washington in December 2008.

Crittenton averaged 5.3 points and 1.8 assists in 113 NBA games.

Ex-Laker Javaris Crittenton faces murder charge in Georgia

[URL="http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef014e8b147551970d-pi"]http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef014e8b147551970d-250wi (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/08/your-commute-live-la-traffic-conditions-16.html) Former Laker Javaris Crittenton is expected to be sent back to Atlanta soon to face a charge of murder after his dramatic arrest Monday night while boarding a plane at John Wayne Airport.
Officials said Crittenton, wanted in connection with a drive-by shooting in Atlanta, is being held an LAPD jail facility and could face a court hearing as early as Wednesday.
Earlier Monday police said Crittenton may have been hiding in the L.A. area and was considered armed and dangerous. He was arrested as he was about to board a plane back to Atlanta.
Crittenton was arrested on a murder warrant, the FBI said.

He was taken into custody without incident by a fugitive task force of FBI agents and Los Angeles Police Department officers, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. He was being booked Monday night by LAPD officers.
Crittenton, 23, allegedly shot Jullian Jones, a mother of four, on Aug. 19 as she stood outside her home with two other people, authorities said.
Atlanta homicide detectives said Crittenton was trying to shoot someone he believed had stolen jewelry from him in April, according to Georgia law enforcement sources.
Jones was caught in a hail of bullets from the driverís side of a sport utility vehicle. She was hit multiple times and declared dead at a hospital, according to authorities.

Crittenton, of Fayetteville, Ga., was drafted by the Lakers in 2007 but was traded in his rookie year to the Memphis Grizzlies. His NBA career sputtered with the Washington Wizards in 2009 when he and then-teammate Gilbert Arenas pulled guns on each other.
