Former NBA star Ben Gordon has been involved in some truly bizarre legal incidents over the course of the last few months. In June, he was arrested in Los Angeles after he allegedly pulled a bunch of fire alarms at his apartment complex when there was no fire. Three months later, he was hospitalized after he allegedly locked his girlfriend in a gym while carrying a blade around. He also sent several threatening videos to people during that incident, and it’s clear something doesn’t seem to be right with Gordon.
The 34-year-old added to his list of legal situations on Monday afternoon when he allegedly attacked a man at an apartment building during a dispute over a security deposit. According to law enforcement sources who spoke with TMZ Sports, Gordon went to a building where he used to live and demanded thousands of dollars from a manager. He also allegedly put his hands on the man when he didn’t initially comply with the request. Eventually, the man gave Gordon some money and got him to go away, but a short time later, Gordon returned when he realized that all of the money that he was apparently owed wasn’t there.
By the time Gordon returned to the scene, the police had been called and they were there investigating the incident. They placed Gordon under arrest and charged him with felony robbery. He was booked at a nearby jail and released on $50,000 bail.
Gordon hasn’t played in the NBA since 2015, but for what it’s worth, he made more than $80 million during his NBA career while playing for the Bulls, Pistons, Bobcats, and Magic. Most recently, he spent some time playing for the G League’s Texas Legends earlier this year.
Outside of getting in trouble with the law a lot lately, Gordon has also gotten into the habit of posting creepy videos on his social media accounts in recent weeks. Stuff like whatever this is:
It’s unclear what Gordon might be going through, but it’s certainly sad hearing about all these recurring situations.
