Javaris Crittenton Pleads Guilty on Gun Charge

Washington Wizards guard Javaris Crittenton has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor gun possession. The 200-pound, 6-foot-5-inch millionaire athlete explained that he illegally brought a pistol across state lines and into the Verizon Center locker room because he feared for his life after he and teammate Gilbert Arenas argued over a card game.

Previously, Mr. Arenas pleaded guilty to felony gun possession. He first said he brought four handguns from his home into the team locker room to keep them away from his children, but later abondoned that claim. It’s pretty obvious that someone who can afford a million-dollar swimming pool can afford to buy a home gun safe.
