Javaris Crittenton's attorney, Brian Steel, says his client plans to surrender to authorities to face murder charges in Atlanta.
Steel says that Crittenton will be leaving Los Angeles and should arrive in Atlanta early Tuesday. He also maintains his client's innocence...
Atlanta police obtained a murder warrant for Crittenton in the Aug. 19 shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones. Police say Jones was walking with two men when she was shot and they believe one of the men with her was the target.
Crittenton was, allegedly, in the process of trying to track down the individual or individuals that he thought stole some personal effects...
FOSG's Deidra Dukes and Russ Spencer explain...
**UPDATE** 8:30 a.m Tuesday---
In retrospect, perhaps the former Georgia Tech star and NBA washout shouldn't have announced he was coming back.
The reason....the FBI was there waiting for him before he boarded his flight to Atlanta...and arrested him on the spot.
The Atlanta Journal-Constistution says Crittenton was taken into custody without incident. There is not yet an indication when he will be extradited back to Atlanta.
