Former NBA Star Ben Gordon Arrested For Hitting 10-Year Old Son At Airport


Do you remember Ben Gordon? He became the first rookie in NBA history to win the Sixth Man Of The Year Award. He averaged over 20 points per game for two seasons. There was a time when he was deadly from three. He had games with 9 made threes and 45 points. He last played for the Orlando Magic during the 2014-15 season, but ever since he left Chicago in 2009, his career was going downhill. 

After Gordon hung up his sneakers he made headlines for getting arrested four times within one year. In 2017 Ben Gordon first was arrested, after freaking out at his apartment complex and pulling multiple fire alarms. A couple of months later came Ben Gordon’s 2nd arrest of the year. This time he had lost it completely and was hospitalized. He was sending threatening videos to people in the days before a violent standoff with a woman in his NY gym.

Arrest number three was due to Gordon being pulled over with a forged license plate, before arrest number four on a felony robbery charge.

Since then, things have remained quiet around Gordon… until now. On Monday, Gordon was arrested at LaGuardia for allegedly hitting his 10-year-old son. Gordon was waiting for his flight when police arrested him, and transported his son to a hospital for an evaluation. Two Port Authority officers sustained injuries during Gordon’s arrest.

Charges against Gordon are currently pending.
