Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been arrested on murder charges.

The fugitive from justice was trying to board an airplane in Orange County, Calif. Crittenton had checked in for a flight to Atlanta Monday night, where his lawyer said he was going to surrender in the murder case against him.

He was taken into custody and booked at an L.A. police station.

A wanted man by the FBI, he was booked on suspicion of being a fugitive from justice, a bureau source has confirmed to the Washington Post.

Javaris, who played for the Washington Wizards and was the other player involved in the Gilbert Arenas gun incident, allegedly killed Julian Jones.

Cops believe Crittenton was not aiming at Jones but rather someone else in the area who may have robbed the former basketball player in April.
