Javaris Crittenton To Turn Himself In To Police, Claims He's Innocent Of Murder Charges

Javaris Crittenton, who had been at-large following allegations that he shot a 22-year old woman in a drive-by shooting in Atlanta last month, will turn himself in to Atlanta authorities, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Crittenton's lawyer confirmed that he will be on a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta on Monday night. He also said that Crittenton is innocent.

Crittenton will be on a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta and should arrive in his hometown "very early [Tuesday] morning," said attorney Brian Steel, retained by family members earlier Monday.

"Mr. Crittenton wants to clear his name," Steel told the AJC. "He's innocent of the charges."

The alleged shooting took place on August 19. The FBI had gotten involved, suggesting that Crittenton booked a one-way flight to Los Angeles on August 24. Steel told the paper that Crittenton volunteered to turn himself into Los Angeles authorities, but was asked to fly back to Atlanta.
