The AP reports that Javaris Crittenton has been arrested at John Wayne International Airport in L.A. by FBI agents after checking in for a flight to Atlanta. Crittenton was wanted through the weekend following an arrest warrant issued by Atlanta police in connection with the murder of a mother of four on August 19th. Crittenton's attorney said Monday that his client is innocent and would be taking the flight

An FBI spokesperson said Crittenton was arrested without incident. The arrest brings an end to concern for Crittenton's status after not being heard from since the announce of the arrest warrant. 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that the long-time boyfriend of the victim in the shooting planned to propose to her that night, and that her four children could hear the shots from inside the house. Crittenton is expected to be charged with the firing of shots from a black SUV in a drive-by armed assault aimed at two unarmed men in the same area. The victim, Jullian Jones, is not thought by police to be the target of the shooting. The targeted men fled the scene, unharmed. On Friday, Crittenton booked a one-way flight to Los Angeles, according to multiple media outlets. 

We'll update this post as the story develops.
