Former NBA guard Ben Gordon has been arrested after a Chicago McDonald’s security guard was punched in the face, police said. Gordon, 39, was charged with misdemeanor battery causing bodily harm and battery making physical contact, the Chicago Tribune reported Saturday. Gordon, who played for four teams during his NBA career, was arrested about 3:30 a.m. Friday when police responded to a report of a disturbance by a man who was being escorted from the McDonald’s. A 29-year-old man was hit in the face and thrown to the ground. A 21-year-old man was pushed and also thrown to the ground. Both men refused medical help. Police said Gordon was arrested at the scene.
The child had an existing order of protection against his father out of the state of Illinois from May 2018, court records show. An American Airlines employee said she saw the ex-basketball player abuse the child and yell at him after the kid dropped a book on the floor, the complaint stated. Gordon allegedly tussled with responding Port Authority cops — and tried to avoid getting handcuffed and put in a patrol car while declaring, “I am not going with you guys,” the complaint said.
An ex-girlfriend of former NBA player Ben Gordon claims a “Karen” who recognized him sparked his arrest for allegedly hitting his 10-year-old son. Gordon’s ex Ashley Banks said the “Karen” targeted the former basketball player after she recognized him Monday at LaGuardia Airport in New York, where he was arrested on allegations he struck his child. Gordon has been charged with assault and resisting arrest. Banks, who dated Gordon from 2016 to 2020, said he did not hurt his son, but that the “Karen” scarred the child for life. “The problem is the child was traumatized,” Banks told the New York Post.
