(NEW YORK) — New York Knicks Raymond Felton was arrested on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon early Tuesday morning, according to a police spokesman.
The point guard turned himself in at the 20th precinct on the Upper West Side of Manhattan shortly after the Knicks 110-108 loss to Dallas at Madison Square Garden. Felton was charged with second and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm as well as fourth-degree possession of a firearm. The first two charges are felonies; the latter is a misdemeanor.
The 29-year old signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Knicks before the 2012-13 season. Felton has struggled this year and has been offered in multiple trade packages before the NBA trade deadline on Feb. 20.
Felton is scheduled to appear in criminal court in Manhattan later Tuesday morning.
