NEW YORK, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- New York Knicks point guard Raymond Felton was arrested early Tuesday morning after he allegedly pointed a gun at his estranged wife.

New York lost to Dallas 110-108 at Madison Square Garden on Monday night and the veteran point guard played 34 minutes, scoring eight points with seven assists.

It was reported last week that Felton and his wife were getting a divorce.

The New York Post is saying that Felton pointed a gun at his estranged wife during an earlier dispute and that Ariane Raymondo-Felton brought the pistol to a police precinct on the Upper West Side after removing it from their home on West 63rd Street.

“The wife is saying they had four verbal altercations since July last year. On the last one, he pointed a gun at her. It’s an armor-piercing gun, loaded. It’s a bad [expletive] gun,” a police source told the Post. “She said, ‘He’s out doing his thing.’ Looks like he was [having sex with] some girl on the side. They were arguing about [expletive] domestic stuff, but on this last one he pulled the gun, she said.”

The 29-year old is averaging 10.5 points, six assists and three rebounds this season.

“It’s your life,” Felton said, according to the New York Daily News. “When you’re going through certain things in life it’s on your mind, no matter what. You try not to let it come into your job, into your workplace, but sometimes it does. You’re human and it’s a part of life. But at the same time, it is what it is. That’s my personal life, though; I don’t want to discuss that part.”
