NEW YORK — Former UNC guard Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday on firearm possession charges, police said.

Details about what led to the arrest, which happened a couple of hours after the Knicks lost to the visiting Dallas Mavericks at New York’s Madison Square Garden, weren’t immediately available.

Felton currently plays for the New York Knicks.

Felton, arrested at 12:50 a.m., was being held on initial charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the second, third and fourth degrees, New York Police Department Sgt. John Buthorn said.

Those counts relate to allegations that Felton illegally had a firearm and a loaded ammunition magazine, he said.

Felton played 33 minutes in the Knicks’ 110-108 loss to the Mavericks on Monday night.

    Have him contact PJ Hairston and find out what UNC alumni paid his way so Felton can get out of this quicklike as well.

      What makes him a thug? Considering what NYC’s laws are as they pertain to firearms, some would argue that a citizen is not obligated to obey an unjust law. The story says he illegally had a firearm. It doesn’t say that he was in possession of a stolen weapon. If you’re in NYC and you have a gun, and you’re not a cop, then you’re going to be in trouble if caught.
