Raymond Felton Arrested on Gun Charges

Raymond Felton turned himself in to police early Tuesday morning, hours after the New York Knicks lost a heartbreaker at home to the Dallas Mavericks. Felton is facing charges, after allegedly pointing a gun at a woman. Per the Wall Street Journal:

Details leading up to the arrest weren’t immediately known, but the 29-year-old turned himself in at about 12:50 Tuesday morning at the 20th precinct on the Upper West Side, where he was questioned before being charged, police said.

He now faces three counts: Second-degree and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon—which are felony charges—and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, police said. A conviction on the second-degree charge carries a maximum of 15 years in prison.

The arrest took place hours after Felton and the Knicks suffered perhaps their most deflating defeat of the season, a 110-108 loss to the Dallas Mavericks at Madison Square Garden Monday night, a game in which Felton scored eight points and logged seven assists.
