Well, this season sure keeps getting worse, doesn’t it? According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York:
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.
Felton is expected to appear in criminal court in Manhattan later Tuesday morning.
As we all know from Plaxico Burress’ problems, New York City is very strict with its gun possession laws. Now, we don’t know whether the charges will be dropped or otherwise reduced, but at the moment, Raymond Felton is in a very bad situation. According to the New York Post, Felton was allegedly brandishing his gun at his girlfriend. Hopefully that will turn out not to be the case.
