Raymond Felton Arrested, Charged With Weapons Possession

Hours after a killer last-second loss to Dallas, Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested and charged with three counts of weapons possession.


Felton turned himself in, after police say his wife Ariane Raymondo-Felton—who filed for divorce last week—brought the gun to police and said she found it in her home. New York has very strict laws on unregistered firearms (that's what earned Plaxico Burress nearly two years in prison) and Felton has been charged with second-degree and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm, both felonies, and misdemeanor count of fourth-degree possession.

The New York Post (and no one else for now) is reporting that Felton allegedly pointed a gun at a woman, and that a girlfriend may have been involved. We will learn more when Felton makes an expected appearance in court later this morning.
