NEW YORK (AP) — New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton has been arraigned on two weapons possession charges after a lawyer for his wife turned in a loaded semi-automatic handgun to a Manhattan precinct.

Felton did not enter a plea in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday following his early morning arrest at a stationhouse. He was released on $25,000 bail.

Prosecutors charged Fenton with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. A judge ordered him not to have contact with his wife. His lawyer says he has no plans to. They’re getting divorced.

Police say the gun was delivered to a stationhouse Monday before the Knicks’ loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Prosecutors say the unregistered, Belgian-made FN Herstal pistol was loaded with 18 rounds of ammunition in a magazine.
