Ben Gordon was arrested again after he allegedly beat up two McDonald's security guards in Chicago 2 weeks ago he was arrested for punching his son in an NY airport

Ben Gordon was arrested again.. after he allegedly beat up two McDonald's security guards in Chicago. 2 weeks ago he was arrested for punching his son in an NY airport.

Former NBA player Ben Gordon was arrested early Friday morning and charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery causing bodily harm and battery making physical contact, according to Deanese Williams-Harris of the Chicago Tribune.

Police said they were called after security guards attempted to escort Gordon out of a McDonald's in Chicago following a disturbance. He allegedly punched one man in the face and threw another to the ground.

Gordon was arrested at the scene after 3 a.m. local time.

According to TMZ Sports, he was charged with two counts of assault in the second degree, one count of criminal contempt, one count of assault in the third degree, one count of resisting arrest, one count of criminal contempt in the second degree, one count of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of attempted assault in the third degree.

A witness told the Port Authority Police Department that Gordon struck his son "multiple times" in the face before police got involved. He allegedly resisted arrest and injured two police officers in the struggle.

Gordon's son and both officers were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Hours after his release from that arrest, the 39-year-old was arrested again in Harlem in connection to a 2020 robbery. A woman said Gordon stole her phone and elbowed her in the eye.

Gordon spent 11 seasons in the NBA, including five with the Chicago Bulls after being drafted No. 3 overall in 2004. He last appeared for the Orlando Magic in 2014-15.

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.

Gordon was charged last month with assault, resisting arrest, contempt and child endangerment in New York for allegedly punching his young son at LaGuardia Airport.

Gordon later confirmed to police that it was his son. Gordon also allegedly assaulted officers as they attempted to handcuff him and put him in a patrol car.

Joshua Kirshner, an attorney representing Gordon, said the son is 10 or 11 years old.

Gordon, who played collegiately at the University of Connecticut, was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 2004 and played 11 seasons in the NBA with Chicago, Detroit, Charlotte and Orlando, most recently in the 2014-15 season with the Magic.

His best season was 2006-07 when he averaged 21.4 points and 3.6 assists for the Bulls.
