Ex-NBA player Crittenton freed from jail

Former NBA player Javaris (jah-VAHR’-is) Crittenton has been

freed from jail following his arrest on charges of obstructing a

police officer and speeding.

Crittenton has been out on bond on charges that he killed a

woman in south Atlanta. He faces a murder charge after police

accused him of killing 23-year-old Jullian Jones during an August

drive-by shooting. A message left for Crittenton’s attorney

Thursday was not immediately returned.

Crittenton was jailed Wednesday after being pulled over by

police, who say he was speeding and refused to get out of his

Porsche. Riverdale police Maj. Greg Barney says he was going more

than 60 mph in a 45-mph zone.

Clayton County Jail records show that the former Washington

Wizards player was released on bond on the latest charges Wednesday

evening.
