Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton arrested. Again.

Javaris Crittenton is already out of the NBA and is out on bail right now as he awaits his murder trial in the 2011 shooting death of a young mother in the Atlanta area.

So you would think if one were pulled over by the police on a traffic violation right now you wouldn’t want to cause waves.

If so, you don’t think like Crittenton. Here is the report from

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Javaris was pulled over for going over 60 in a 45 — and when the cop wrote up the ticket … Javaris refused to sign it, something you have to do to acknowledge receipt of the citation.

As a result, we’re told the officer asked Javaris to step out of the vehicle — and Javaris refused again.

We’re told words were exchanged — and after the officer reasoned with Javaris, the former NBA player agreed to step out of the car … at which point he was placed under arrest for speeding and obstruction of an officer.

Crittenton, if you recall, was the other guy suspended in the Gilbert Arenas guns in the locker room incident.

Really, it’s all just sad.

    I distinctly remember how, during the 2007 NBA draft, I really wanted my team (the Heat) to draft this guy. We desperately needed PG help. The Lakers ended up picking him one spot before we selected.

    Bullet dodged.

    Now since he’s not on a roster this doesn’t count as a turd watch does it?

    “Really, it’s all just sad.”

    For the person he killed and their loved ones, no doubt. But for this total scumbag who has caused all his own problems? Sorry, don’t feel sad for him at all. With any luck he’ll get locked away before he hurts anybody else.

    Maybe Gilbert Arenas knew a thing or two about this guy, and brought his guns to the locker room as a wise, prudential move. (For his own life’s sake, not for the Shiny Happy NBA Image.)
