LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton was in police custody after being arrested at a Southern California airport to board a flight to Atlanta, where his lawyer said he would go to surrender in a murder case.
Crittenton, who was suspended from the league for having guns in a locker room with teammate Gilbert Arenas, was arrested Monday evening at John Wayne Airport in Orange County after checking in for a redeye Delta Air Lines flight, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. She said he was with a male companion who was not arrested.
Crittenton was taken to a Los Angeles police station where he was booked on suspicion of being a fugitive from justice. He will be held pending a possible court appearance in state court Wednesday before being taken to Atlanta.
Atlanta Police spokeswoman Kim Jones said Tuesday the timetable for Crittenton’s return depends on whether he waives extradition.
Crittenton, 23, was wanted on a federal arrest warrant after the FBI learned that he traveled on a one-way ticket to Los Angeles, where he was known to have family and friends, several days after a deadly Aug. 19 shooting.
