New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday morning on multiple counts of criminal possession of a weapon, according to a police department spokesman.

Felton was charged with three counts total: second and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm, which are felonies, and fourth-degree possession of a firearm, a misdemeanor, reports the Wall Street Journal‘s Chris Herring.

New York Post’s Larry Celona reports that Felton allegedly pointed a gun at a women and that Felton’s wife, who recently filed for divorce, was also being questioned.

“Ariane Raymondo-Felton was being quizzed at the 20th Precinct Station House on the Upper West Side, according to law-enforcement sources. It was not clear where the alleged incident happened.”

The Knicks have a current three-year, $10 million deal with Felton, who scored eight points in a loss to the Dallas Mavericks earlier Monday night. Felton is expected to appear in criminal court sometime Tuesday morning.


NY's gun laws are out-of-control. NY's attitude toward guns is insanely misguided. With that being established, one of the primary rules in firearm ownership is that you never, ever point your gun at anything you don't intend to shoot. This story makes it sound like Felton was having some distress in his life, and perhaps shouldn't have been carrying until he sorted it out and was in a better frame of mind, and could use his tools appropriately. Especially in a slave state like NY.
