Former NBA player Ben Gordon was arrested Monday on felony robbery charges at the Los Angeles apartment complex where he once lived, TMZ Sports first reported. The man let Gordon leave with some money, then called the cops.
According to the report, Gordon attempted to get his security deposit back, but the apartment manager claimed he didn't have access to the money.
Gordon, 34, was arrested on November 20 in Manhattan after he was pulled over driving a auto with a forged license plate. According to the police report that Mota relayed by phone, Gordon confronted the apartment manager about returning his security deposit. 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.
Controversies around Gordon are not new. They placed Gordon under arrest and charged him with felony robbery.
Longtime NBA guard Ben Gordon has been arrested for the second time in a week and third time in a little more than a month.
Gordon, who last played in an National Basketball Association game with the Magic in 2015, has had a busy year getting into trouble with the law. He also sent several threatening videos to people during that incident, and it's clear something doesn't seem to be right with Gordon.
Gordon made $84 million during an 11-year National Basketball Association career, which, in addition to Chicago, included stops with Detroit, Charlotte and Orlando.
