Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested late Monday night on three separate weapons charges after he allegedly pointed a gun at a woman, something first reported by multiple New York media outlets and confirmed to PBT by the NYPD .

Felton is expected to appear in court Tuesday.

New York has some of the strictest gun possession laws in the nation. Police wanted to speak to Felton following the Knicks’ loss Monday night to the Mavericks and he turned himself in at the 20th Precinct Station on the West Side, according to a police spokesperson. The New York Post, has a good accounting of the incident.

New York Knicks star Raymond Felton was questioned by police Tuesday morning after allegedly pointing a gun at a woman, sources said…

Police said Felton was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second, third and fourth-degrees… The woman involved was his girlfriend, sources said.

Felton’s wife of less than two years filed for divorce recently, she was at the police station although police would not say if she was the one who turned in the gun.

There are few other details of the case, including where it happened.

Felton is in the second year of a three-year, $10 million contract. His game has regressed this season, averaging 10.5 points, 6 assists and 3 rebounds a game while shooting just 28 percent from three (all his lowest numbers in years), and with a below average PER of 12.6. The Knicks shopped Felton at the trade deadline but there were no takers.

    Can’t shoot on the court, so I guess he’s trying to shoot off the court.

      when coach woodson told him he was shifting him to shooting guard, felton took it literally.

    Yet another new low, but this one trumps every silly thing they’ve done on the court.

    Welp, Knicks finally found a way to dump Felton’s contract. Bet he had no idea why Steve Mills was so willing to loan him a gun…

      Lol, you beat me to it!

      Sorry Knicks fans – Felton could’ve just completed a murder/suicide pact with Stoudemire, Bargnani, and Chandler and Melo can opt out this summer, re-sign for Vet’s minimum, and you’re still over the cap in 2014-15.

      Thank the podunk markets for this lovely CBA.

        You guys do realize Agent 0 is still collecting a paycheck, right?

    Dang, playa already has a girlfriend while still married to another chick for less than two years? Good old fashioned NBA love story.

  5. campcouch - Feb 25, 2014 at 6:19 AM

    that’s 2 years in the clink right? Knicks,sign me for the vet minimum,I shoot around 46% and am an 83% FT shooter and I have my own healthcare!

    Any way they can prove Amare was involved so we can void his aweful contract?

    • therealhtj - Feb 25, 2014 at 5:04 PM

      Amare could shoot the mayor on the 6 o’clock news and you’re not getting rid of that contract.

  7. flyii - Feb 25, 2014 at 7:02 AM

    I hope it’s not true for his sake. As much as his game upsets me I always thought he was a good guy and jail is a horrible place to be. But in nyc there’s no deals no nothing with gun charges if he’s guilty he will go to jail. Ask Lil Wayne and Plaxico Burress.

    As dumb as NYC gun laws are, you’re even dumber if you violate them. I would think what happened to Plaxico is the standard. He got 2 years with a plea deal, after shooting himself in the leg. Felton pointed the gun at another person so this could even be worse. This is one case where being a celebrity with money might actually make it worse because making an example of you lets the whole country know not to carry a gun in NYC.

    I dont even LMAO

  14. imbetterthanyou - Feb 25, 2014 at 9:35 AM

    The most egregious part of the whole thing was the New York Post referring to Felton as a star…that’s the most concerning.

    • cruzan80 - Feb 25, 2014 at 10:04 AM

      I thought I was the only one who noticed that, lol!

  15. obmig - Feb 25, 2014 at 9:47 AM

    Didn’t they release their backup pg yesterday? This is so incredible that they have to make a tv show out of it.

  16. doc305 - Feb 25, 2014 at 10:13 AM

    I remember just a season or two ago everyone was talking about the great rivalry that was beginning to take shape again between Miami and NYK, we were gonna go back to the Ewing-Mourning days of hard fought tough 7 game playoff series. What a bummer that Knicks management blew that

  17. roseann894 - Feb 25, 2014 at 10:22 AM

    How come every time I see a headline about some has-been, it turns out he’s being paid a salary by the Knicks?

  18. shuttaman1990 - Feb 25, 2014 at 10:23 AM

    His wife actually turned the hand gun in.
    man she probably try to set him up
    She looks hot like whoa.
    She probably is crazy too, the hotter they are, the crazier they can be.

    • erckle31 - Feb 25, 2014 at 2:13 PM

      Dude, I swear you make Lakers fans look like 5 year old fools. Listen to what you’re saying.

      • shuttaman1990 - Feb 25, 2014 at 3:21 PM

        I’m actually not saying anything.
        If you are implying to what I’m typing then you are once again wrong.

        Don’t hate the fan, don’t hate the players, hate the game.

        Lakers wait for it………… ALL DAY

    Tough guy

    NY is a police state.

    • asimonetti88 - Feb 25, 2014 at 10:40 AM

      New York, where it’s a felony to drink a large soda, but feel free to play with other people’s money on the stock market

  21. elwaysagenius - Feb 25, 2014 at 10:49 AM

    Took last nights loss hard.

  22. stayhigh_247 - Feb 25, 2014 at 12:19 PM

    I can’t believe he was able to find a woman so pretty in the first place, who is also a law student. He screwed up big time.

  23. whitey11177 - Feb 25, 2014 at 1:09 PM

    Mike Woodson was also brought in for questioning over the murder of the Knicks playoff hopes.

  24. yuwannano - Feb 25, 2014 at 1:13 PM

    [The law enforcement source said the gorgeous Raymondo-Felton got fed up with Felton, telling cops her hubby of 19 months was a serial cheater.]

    Really? Is this how NY cops talk?

  25. caeser12 - Feb 25, 2014 at 3:10 PM

    Next on MSG Network: “Nobody Loves Raymond.”

    Is there any way to prove that Mike Woodson bought the gun for him, and that he purchased it from Dolan?

    Go NY.
