For those of you who watched Monday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks, the Knicks lost a heartbreak when a prayer from Dallas player Dirk Nowitzki bounced on the rim and fell into the basket in literally the last second of the game. That last basket broke a tie between the two teams, giving Dallas the win.
That last play summed up the way the Knicks season has gone so far, as games the team should have won, somehow resulted in losses. They have suffered numerous injuries and are now playing and praying for some way to make the playoffs, an increasingly difficult task with each breathtaking loss.
Well add this to the misery that is now the Knicks season. Felton Spencer, the point guard for the team, was arrested on gun charges.
According to a New York Police Department spokesman, Felton was arrested at the 20th Precinct shortly after the Knicks lost to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday. He is expected to be arraigned later Tuesday.
The arrest garnered him second and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon felony charges and a fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon misdemeanor charge.
According to New York courts, the second-degree felony alleges Felton “knowingly possesses a loaded firearm” and the third-degree felony alleges Felton “knowingly possesses a firearm which has been defaced for the purpose of concealment or prevention of the detection of a crime or misrepresenting the identity of such firearm.”
The second-degree felony charge carries a maximum sentence of 15 years if convicted, and the third-degree charge carries a maximum sentence of seven years if convicted.0
