FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says Javaris Crittenton is being held on a state penal code violation of being a fugitive from justice. He was taken into custody Monday night at John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

Police in Atlanta had obtained a murder warrant for Crittenton in the Aug. 19 shooting of 22-year-old Jullian Jones, a mother of four young children, as she was walking with two men. Police believe one of the men with her was the target.
