Late Monday night, a report surfaced that New York Knicks’ point guard Raymond Felton was being questioned for “allegedly pointing a gun at a woman.” Soon after, Felton was arrested on three weapons charges.

The NBA, who usually isn’t quick to suspend players, won’t suspend Felton right now and instead will see how the situation plays out.

This is a very serious situation, but there is still a chance Felton did nothing wrong and the league does not want to punish Felton if that is the case so so they will let the legal process play out.
