Javaris Crittenton Pleads Guilty to Misdemeanor, Gilbert Arenas Looks Worse in the Process
While it's still undetermined what the legal system will do with Gilbert Arenas, there were even more questions surrounding what would become of Javaris Crittenton for his role in the alleged gun play in the Washington Wizards locker room.
After Arenas reportedly laid out three of his guns in front of Crittenton's locker telling him to 'choose one,' an action stemming from a threat Crittenton made to shoot Arenas in the knee after a card game dispute, Crittenton's response was supposedly to pull out a gun of his own.
Today, Crittenton plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge that carries no jail time with it. But in the account of what happened, Arenas looks even worse than he did previously:
During their dispute, Crittenton challenged Arenas — who refused to pay $1,100 for losing a hand — to a fist fight, but Arenas declined, saying he was too old to fight, but instead threatened to either shoot Crittenton in the face or blow up his car, according to the prosecutors' findings, which became public during Arenas' court hearing on Jan. 15. Crittenton responded that he would "shoot the [expletive] out of Arenas" or shoot him in his surgically repaired left knee.
Not great timing for Arenas, who is expected to find out the results of his indefinite suspension on Wednesday. He's expected to be sentenced in March.
