Wizards' Crittenton pleads guilty to misdemeanor gun charge
WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards guard Javaris Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge Monday, explaining he had a pistol because he feared teammate Gilbert Arenas would shoot him or blow up his car after the two argued over a card game.

The hearing marked the first time authorities confirmed Crittenton was the other player involved in the confrontation with Arenas, who pleaded guilty Jan. 15 to a felony gun charge.

D.C. Superior Court Senior Judge Bruce Beaudin sentenced Crittenton, 22, to a year of unsupervised probation after Crittenton pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of an unregistered firearm. Beaudin ordered Crittenton to mentor young people in Washington and to help with relief efforts for Haiti.

A slap on the hand it seems. I wonder if the NBA will suspend him?

2. So why didn't the NBA suspend him?
I don't think it's right that Gilbert Arenas is the only player suspended.

4. I imagine they will suspend him now that the case is settled.
They would've waited for Arenas's case to be settled, too, but that idiot couldn't keep his mouth shut and they had to bring down the hammer.

If Crittendon doesn't get suspended for pulling a gun in the locker room, I'll be very surprised.
