Javaris Crittenton Pleads Guilty to Gun Charge

by at . Comments

It's time to give Javaris Crittenton his due.

The Washington Wizards guard has been largely overlooked as the other dude in the gun-toting, locker room standoff with the team's star, Gilbert Arenas.

But let's not forget that it was Crittenton who:

  1. Allegedly threatened to shoot Arenas in his surgically repaired knee after he lost money to him at cards, sparking an infamous prank gone awry
  2. Happened to be strapped himself, pulling his piece after Arenas laid four firearms out in the locker room and left a note telling him to "Pick 1"

For his role in this ridiculousness, Javaris Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor weapons violation. Arenas pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge.

STRAPPED: Javaris Crittenton will no longer be packing heat.

Crittenton pleaded guilty Monday to possession of an unregistered firearm. The D.A. will drop a charge of attempted carrying a pistol without a license.

The player apologized for what he called an “embarrassment” before being sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation for the misdemeanor.

Senior Judge Bruce Beaudin ordered Crittenton to do outreach work with young people in the Washington, D.C. He was also fined a total of $1,250.

Crittenton’s lawyer, Peter H. White, says Crittenton brought a legally owned, unloaded handgun to D.C. “only because he legitimately feared for his life.”
