Former NBA player Ben Gordon arrested for allegedly hitting 10-year-old son at NY airport: report

Former NBA player Ben Gordon was arrested Monday at LaGuardia Airport in New York after he allegedly hit his 10-year-old son.

Gordon was waiting for his flight to Chicago when Port Authority police prevented him from boarding the plane and arrested him. He was handcuffed at about 8:45 p.m., police said, according to the New York Post.

His son was taken by an aunt to Long Island Jewish Children’s Hospital for evaluation.

Gordon was processed at the Port Authority police station house and charges against him are pending.

About a week before that incident, he was arrested during a traffic stop for driving with a forged license. He was also arrested two other times in 2017 — once for barricading himself inside a Mount Vernon store he owns during an altercation with a woman and another instance in which he pulled fire alarms in his Los Angeles apartment despite there not being a fire.
