Crittenton taken to Fulton County Jail

ATLANTA -- Former Washington Wizards basketball player Javaris Crittenton has been returned to Atlanta from Los Angeles to face a murder charge.

Fulton County sheriff's office spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said Crittenton waived his first appearance hearing Friday afternoon. His next court appearance will be at 9 a.m. on Sept. 30.

For now, he remains in the Fulton County Jail. 

Crittenton, a former Georgia Tech star, is charged in the death of 22-year-old Julian Jones. She was hit by gunfire during a drive-by shooting.

Police say the shots were aimed at someone walking with her. Crittenton denies any involvement.

Last year, Crittenton pleaded guilty to a gun charge after a locker room altercation with Wizards teammate Gilbert Arenas. He served a year of unsupervised probation.
