Ex-NBA player Crittenton freed from jail after arrest


Posted Feb 23 2012 11:00AM

RIVERDALE, Ga. (AP) -- Former NBA player Javaris 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.
