New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday morning on three counts of criminal possession.
According to a New York Police Department spokesperson, he was charged with second-and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm, and fourth-degree possession of a firearm. The first two charges are felonies, while the last charge is considered a misdemeanor.
While there are conflicting reports indicating what Raymond did with the gun, ESPN reported that Felton's wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton brought in a Belgian pistol- a 5.7/28mm. that belonged to the basketball player into the police station. Raymond was arrested after he turned himself in for questioning at the 20th precinct in Manhattan early Tuesday morning, just after the Knicks lost to the Dallas Mavericks, 110-108.
The Daily News indicated that Ariane is a Cornell University graduate who is now studying at Fordhan University's School of Law.
Earlier rumors swirled that Raymond was initially arrested after he pointed a gun at another woman, who other sources said was his girlfriend and not his wife.
Last week Raymond was questioned about his divorce and said he didn't really want to discuss his personal business.
"It's your life," Raymond said. "When you're going through certain things in life it's on your mind, no matter what. You try not to let it come into your job, into your workplace, but sometimes it does. You're human and it's a part of life. But at the same time, it is what it is. That's my personal life, though."
