Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton was indicted Wednesday on charges of conspiring to sell hundreds of pounds of marijuana and multi-kilo quantities of cocaine.
The troubled athlete is “already awaiting trial for his alleged role in the shooting death of a mother of four.”
Crittenton reportedly “conspired to deal cocaine and marijuana in the months before he was indicted last year for his alleged role in an August 2011 Atlanta shooting death.”
Shortly after 6 a.m. ET Wednesday, DEA agents, federal marshals and local police descended on Crittenton’s home on a cul de sac in Fayetteville, a suburb just south of Atlanta. Crittenton was led away in handcuffs and was booked into the Fulton County Jail. A call to Crittenton’s Atlanta-based attorney, Brian Steel, went unreturned.
According to the district attorney’s office, “Crittenton and the other suspects are accused of selling multi-kilo quantities of cocaine and several hundred pounds of marijuana” during a seven-month investigation dating to June 2012. He will have an initial court appearance Thursday morning on those charges; he had been on limited house arrest as he awaited trial for murder.
