Raymond Felton got Arrested

Under nba posted 1481 days ago.

Raymond Felton's Wife has alleged that he theratened her with a firearm, while the New York Knicks point guard is still in police custody after being arrested for gun charges. Felton faces three counts of criminal possession of a weapon, Knicks point guard Raymon Felton turned himself in at 12:50 a.m. on Tuesday, after the Knicks lost against Dallas Mavericks. New York City has really strict gun possession laws. Raymond Felton didn't make any statement after he arrived at the precinct with a lawyer, police said. He was charged with second- and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm, which are felonies, and fourth-degree possession of a firearm, a misdemeanor, a police spokesman told ESPNNewYork.com. Police said Felton was in possession of a gun he wasn't registered to own. Felton is expected to appear in criminal court in Manhattan later Tuesday. A Knicks spokesman said the team had no immediate comment on Felton's arrest. And NBA spokesman Tim Frank said that the league is "monitoring" Felton's situation. The Knicks had no game scheduled for Tuesday. They next match against the Heat in Miami is on Thursday. Felton, 29, signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Knicks before the 2012-13 season. He has struggled this season, his ninth in the NBA, shooting 40.3 percent from the field and 29.6 percent from 3-point range while averaging 10.4 points per game. The Knicks offered him in several packages before Thursday's trade deadline but couldn't complete a deal. In 2009, New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress was sentenced to two years in prison after accepting a plea deal on a firearm charge following an incident in which he suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his thigh when his gun went off in a Manhattan nightclub. He faced a minimum sentence of 3½ years if convicted at trial.
