Troubled Ex-NBA Player Ben Gordon Has Been Arrested…Again
Ben Gordon, 34, was arrested Monday afternoon for allegedly assaulting a man and taking thousands of dollars from him in the process. The victim in question appears to be someone working at his old apartment complex, and the incident arose from a dispute over the return of Gordon’s security deposit. The man let Gordon leave with some money, then called the cops. And while the cops were there, Gordon returned to collect the rest of his cash.
He was arrested on site and held for $50,000 bail. For the record, Gordon earned in excess of $80 million during his playing days but has run afoul of the law several times with incidents that left him under a psychiatric hold by the NYPD and another that involved pulling fire alarms.
Sounds like he’s having a hard time adjusting to retired life.
