Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas has been charged with a felony.

Arenas has been charged with one count of carrying a pistol without a license, in connection with a locker room standoff with teammate Javaris Crittenton on Christmas Eve.

As we first reported, Arenas' lawyer has been trying to negotiate a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney -- we're told Arenas would cop to a misdemeanor gun charge.
