FBI Arrest Javaris Crittenton at John Wayne Airport in California

I wonder if Crittenton thought the FBI was just going to let someone who they suspect murder someone board a commercial flight to Atlanta?

While Crittenton’s lawyer made a statement that he was going to turn himself into police in Atlanta, the FBI wasn’t taking any chances.

The FBI says former NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been arrested in Southern California to face a murder charge in a deadly Atlanta shooting.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says Crittenton was taken into custody at about 8 p.m. Monday at John Wayne Airport after checking in for a Delta Air Lines flight to Atlanta.

Eimiller says he was arrested without incident by FBI agents with assistance from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

She says he will be held overnight in police custody.

I am curious to see how this plays out. We have no clue what evidence the police have, but what we do know they locked in on Crittenton immediately.

He says he is innocent, his actions after the fact makes him look suspect, but as we learned from the Casey Anthony trial that may not be enough to convict him.

We will keep you update with any breaking news.
