The New York Knicks’ regular season woes may be intensifying in a hurry as reports claim starting point guard Raymond Felton has turned himself over to police in relation to a gun charge.
Details of the sticky legal situation surfaced online early Tuesday (February 25).
New York Knicks guard Raymond Felton’s estranged wife walked his pistol into an NYPD precinct and got the hoops star busted on three gun possession charges. According to NYPD, Ariane Raymondo-Felton brought her husband’s semi-automatic Belgian-made pistol into cops — and early Tuesday morning Ray turned himself in for questioning. He was eventually booked for two felonies — 2nd and 3rd degree possession of a firearm — as well as 4th degree possession … a misdemeanor. (TMZ)
Along with bringing his alleged gun to police, Felton’s wife filed for divorce earlier this month.
Felton went to the Manhattan precinct to deal with the gun trouble … right after the Knicks lost another heart breaker to the Dallas Mavericks. It’s unclear at this point why Felton’s wife of just 19 months brought the gun to cops. She filed for divorce last week. (TMZ)
Some sources claim the Knicks star and his wife have had multiple disputes dating back to last year.
“The wife is saying they had four verbal altercations since July last year. On the last one, he pointed a gun at her. It’s an armor-piercing gun, loaded. It’s a bad ass gun,” a law enforcement source told The Post. The source said the gorgeous Raymondo-Felton, 26, got fed up with Felton and told cops he was a serial cheater. (New York Post)
Felton’s woes follow the Knicks letting go of two key players this week.
The New York Knicks bought out forward Metta World Peace and point guard Beno Udrih. “We are disappointed that it did not work out for Beno and Metta here in New York,” Knicks president and general manager Steve Mills said. “We thank them for their contributions this season and wish them well.” (ESPN)
