Knicks Guard Raymond Felton Arrested For Felony Gun Possession
Just hours after Monday night's home loss to the Dallas Mavericks, Knicks guard Raymond Felton reportedly turned himself in to police on felony gun charges, according to ESPN.com.
The article quotes a State Police spokesman, but says Felton surrendered at the 20th precinct on Manhattan's Upper West Side at around 12:50 a.m.
The charges are second and third degree criminal possession of a firearm, both felonies, and fourth degree possession, a misdemeanor, the report said:
The charges don't stem from him using the firearm in a menacing manner but of possessing a gun he wasn't registered to have, according to the spokesman.
However, on Tuesday afternoon, ESPN reported that Felton's wife had brought the unregistered gun to police and claimed that he threatened her with it.
