New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday morning on multiple counts of criminal possession of a weapon, according to a police department spokesman.

Felton was charged with three counts total: second and third-degree criminal possession of a firearm, which are felonies, and fourth-degree possession of a firearm, a misdemeanor, reports the Wall Street Journal's Chris Herring.

New York Post's Larry Celona reports that Felton allegedly pointed a gun at a women and that Felton's wife, who recently filed for divorce, was also being questioned.

"Ariane Raymondo-Felton was being quizzed at the 20th Precinct Station House on the Upper West Side, according to law-enforcement sources. It was not clear where the alleged incident happened."
The Knicks have a current three-year, $10 million deal with Felton, who scored eight points in a loss to the Dallas Mavericks earlier Monday night. Felton is expected to appear in criminal court sometime Tuesday morning.
