Former NBA star Ben Gordon was arrested again this week, allegedly for assaulting two McDonald’s security guards in Chicago.
Gordon, 39, was taken into custody around 3:30 a.m. on Friday. According to Chicago police, the 2004 third-round pick was being escorted out of Mickey D’s when he became physically aggressive.
Gordon is accused of punching a 29-year-old male guard in the face and throwing him to the ground… before shoving another 21-year-old male guard to the ground as well.
It’s unclear why Gordon was kicked out of the restaurant to begin with.
As a result of the alleged altercation, Gordon was charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery: causing bodily harm and making physical contact. The two guards refused medical treatment.
Less than a month ago, Gordon was arrested for allegedly punching his 10-year-old son in the head at an airport because the boy dropped a book.
Gordon was taken into custody for an open assault case that happened in Manhattan in 2020. This happened soon after he was released on bail for another arrest.
Gordon won an NCAA championship at Uconn in 2004… and in the league, he averaged 14.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game.
Following his retirement in 2017, he had numerous run-ins with the law.
