NEW YORK — New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton has been arrested on three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

Felton turned himself in at 12:50 a.m. Tuesday, shortly after the Knicks lost to the Dallas Mavericks at home.

Felton was expected to be arraigned on charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the second, third and fourth degrees.

Police said the charges don't stem from Felton using the firearm in a menacing manner but from possessing an unregistered gun.

A Knicks spokesman said the team had no immediate comment. It was not clear if Felton had an attorney.

The Knicks brought Felton for a second stint in New York in July 2012, opting to let Jeremy Lin leave. Felton helped the Knicks win the Atlantic Division last year.
