Ex-Bobcat Raymond Felton arrested on gun charges


Apr 24, 2010; Charlotte, NC, USA; Charlotte Bobcats guard Raymond Felton (20) against the Orlando Magic during the second quarter in game three of the first round of the 2010 NBA playoffs at Time Warner Cable Arena.

York police say Knicks player Raymond Felton has been arrested on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

Sgt. Thomas Antonetti says Felton turned himself in at 12:50 a.m. Tuesday and was questioned in the 20th Precinct in Manhattan, hours after his team lost at home to the Dallas Mavericks.

The sergeant says 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.

Antonetti says the 29-year-old is now under the purview of the court system and will face a hearing sometime Tuesday. The charges include criminal possession of a weapon in the second, third and fourth degrees.
