Divorce Led to Knick's Gun Charges

New York Knicks star point guard Raymond Felton was arrested after his wife's divorce lawyer provided the police with an unlicensed gun that she alleges belongs to her husband and was used to threaten her. The gun, a Belgian-made FN Herstal, had 18 rounds of live ammunition in it. The couple are in the process of getting a divorce. Felton was charged with criminal possession of a firearm and criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree. However, while he was not charged with using it to threaten his wife, the judge did issue a six-month order of protection for Felton's wife, and told Felton he "can have no contact whatsoever."
