Ex-NBA player Javaris Crittenton is hot water again after threatening to “beat the sh*t” of the prosecutor in his murder case.
Crittenton of course is being accused of murdering a mother of four in a drive-by shooting over some jewelry.
Crittenton now has a curfew and will wear an ankle monitor. The judge made this ruling after hearing the recording of a jailhouse phone call in which he made the threat against the prosecutor according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
According to prosecutors, while leaving a Sept. 19 bond hearing for his cousin and co-defendant Douglas Gamble – one in which Gamble failed to have his bond reduced from $230,000 – Crittenton followed and intimidated Gabe Banks, the assistant Fulton County district attorney prosecuting the murder trial.
“He was walking at a heightened pace,” Banks said in the emergency hearing. “At some point, he approached me, squared up on me, looked me up and down. He was no more than five or six feet away from me.”
Standing between Banks and Crittenton was Fulton County District Attorney’s Office Investigator Richard Randolph, a member of the agency’s gang unit who had been investigating Crittenton since last year.
“He was making a beeline to Mr. Banks,” Randolph said of Crittenton. “Even though I was standing between them, his gaze didn’t leave Gabe. He stopped, but he never took his eyes off Attorney Gabe Banks.”
Javaris Crittenton has to go.
Yea he was a talented basketball player and made a little money, but he’s one of those people who will always be and cause problems for those around him as long as he’s a free man.
