NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton returned to practice on Wednesday, a day after he was arrested on felony weapons charges.

The South Carolina native faces three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

He said during practice that the arrest was "not a distraction."

An attorney for Felton's estranged wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, turned in a loaded semi-automatic handgun allegedly belonging to Felton to the 20th Precinct in Manhattan, hours after his team lost at home to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday.

NYPD Sgt. Thomas Antonetti said Felton turned himself in at 12:50 a.m. Tuesday accompanied by his attorney. 

The charges don't stem from him using the firearm in a menacing manner but of possessing a gun he wasn't registered to have, said police.

Felton was arraigned and released on $25,000 bail .

Raymondo-Felton, who recently filed for divorce, was questioned by police. Felton allegedly pointed the handgun at Raymondo-Felton during an earlier domestic dispute, according to the New York Post.

A Knicks spokesman said the team had no immediate comment.

Felton has had a disappointing season, averaging 10.4 points and shooting 40 percent while missing 16 games with a series of injuries. He has been frequently criticized by fans as the Knicks have fallen to 21-36.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
