Ben Gordon is not having a good year.
The former NBA star was arrested on allegations that he beat up two security guards at a McDonald’s in Chicago on Friday, the Chicago Tribune reported. According to the Tribune, the 39-year-old is facing misdemeanor battery “charges causing bodily harm and battery making physical contact.”
The former Bulls star was arrested at the scene after hitting and throwing a 29-year-old man to the ground and also shoving another 21-year-old man to the ground.
This would be Gordon’s second arrest after he was previously charged with assault, resisting arrest, contempt and child endangerment in New York for allegedly punching his young son at LaGuardia Airport last month. Two Port Authority of New York cops and New Jersey police officers were injured during that arrest.
His latest arrest adds to an already troubling history with the law.
Gordon grew up in Mount Vernon and won an NCAA title with UConn prior to his NBA career. He played 11 seasons in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Charlotte Hornets and Orlando Magic.
