New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday morning on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon, according to a New York Police Department spokesman.
Felton was charged with second- and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm, which are felonies, and fourth-degree possession of a firearm, which is a misdemeanor, the spokesman said. Further details on the weapons charges are not known at this point.</p>
Felton is expected to appear in criminal court in Manhattan later Tuesday morning.
The Knicks' starting point guard was being questioned by New York City police early Tuesday morning, hours after the Knicks' loss to the Dallas Mavericks, the spokesman said. Felton turned himself in for questioning at the 20th precinct on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
Felton, 29, signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Knicks prior to the 2012-13 season.
He has struggled this season, and the Knicks offered him in several trade packages prior to the Feb. 20 trade deadline but could not complete a deal.
