Ex-NBA player Ben Gordon makes bail, gets arrested hours later in Manhattan – The Denver Post


Former NBA player Ben Gordon made bail after an alleged violent incident at LaGuardia Airport, only to be rearrested hours later.

The ex-shooting guard was first cuffed at the Queens airport around 7:45 p.m. Monday after punching his child in the face with a closed fist, sources said.

Gordon, 39, allegedly resisted arrest when Port Authority police officers attempted to take him into custody.

During the scuffle, two officers suffered minor injuries, according to police.

Gordon, 39, was charged with violating his son’s order of protection, as well as assault and resisting arrest.

After the incident, the 10-year-old boy, escorted by an aunt who was also at the gate, was transported to Long Island Jewish Hospital to be treated.

Gordon, whose last known address was in Chicago, was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court and held on a $50,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond.

He was transported to Rikers Island pending his next court date, but made bail and was released on Wednesday, records show.

Hours later, he was arrested again.

The ex-baller was taken into custody at Harlem’s 32nd Precinct stationhouse for a 2020 robbery, police said.

Gordon got into an argument with a 22-year-old friend in a home on W. 131st St. near Fredrick Douglass Blvd. in Harlem March 12, 2020, cops said.

The 6-foot-3 basketball star allegedly grabbed the woman’s phone and smashed it on the ground.

The woman claimed Gordon elbowed her in the eye, causing her pain and bruising.

He was charged with robbery for the 2020 incident, police said.
