NEW YORK, N.Y. (WBTW) - Raymond Felton, a guard with the New York Knicks who once starred for Latta High School and the University of North Carolina,  was released on a $25,000 bond after he appeared in court on two weapons possession charges.

Felton was charged when 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.

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 as they're getting divorced.

Felton is in his ninth NBA season, and was a national high school basketball player of the year at Latta, where he lead the Vikings to back-to-back state championships.  He then helped lead the Tar Heels to the 2005 NCAA national championship.
