Crittenton Indicted On Murder And Gang Activity

((HT: AJC/Garner))

It has been a fall of prolific and quick proportions for former Atlanta high school, college, and NBA'er Javaris Crittenton...
He was a teammate of Dwight Howard, played at Georgia Tech, and was drafted in the first round by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Now, he's up on charges that'll keep him in prison for a long time if convicted.

Fulton County's District Attorney's office put out a 12-count grand jury indictment against him and his cousin that includes charges of "aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, giving false statements, and participation in criminal street gang activity" in the shooting of a woman who was not the supposed target in an August 2011 shooting.

Crittenton was robbed at gunpoint of $55,000 of jewelry in April of that year and was seeking revenge on the crime.

Here's a history lesson on the Crittenton case...

Here's video from August of 2011 when Crittenton waived extradition to Georgia...
