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

Sgt. Thomas Antonetti says Felton turned himself in at 12:50 a.m. Tuesday and was questioned in the 20th Precinct in Manhattan, hours after his team lost at home to the Dallas Mavericks.

The sergeant says the charges don’t stem from him using the firearm in a menacing manner but from possessing a gun he wasn’t registered to have.

Antonetti says the 29-year-old is now under the purview of the court system and will face a hearing Tuesday. The charges include criminal possession of a weapon in the second, third and fourth degrees.

A Knicks spokesman did not immediately return a phone call Tuesday. It was not clear if Felton had an attorney.
