Javaris Crittenton Charged With Illegal Gun Possession

The Washington Post is reporting that Wizards guard Javaris Crittenton, the other member of the December 21 dispute involving Gilbert Arenas, has been formally charged with illegal gun possession.

Crittenton’s case had been held up because the authorities had trouble locating his gun, which he allegedly chambered after Arenas put four unloaded firearms on his locker table and told Crittenton to pick one. However, Crittenton’s lawyer, Peter White, told Michael Lee of the Washington Post that Crittenton’s gun was unloaded. White also said that Crittenton brought the gun to the Verizon Center “because he legitimately feared for his life.”

Like Arenas, Crittenton is working on a deal where he pleas to a misdemeanor in return for the felony charge being dropped.
