Ex-NBA, UConn player Ben Gordon arrested on suspicion of robbery
LOS ANGELES — Former NBA player Ben Gordon has been arrested on suspicion of robbery in Los Angeles for allegedly punching and pulling a knife on an apartment manager.
Police spokesman Tony Im says Gordon went to a building Saturday where he rented two apartments and demanded his security deposit.
Im says Gordon punched the manager in the face and walked away with money, returned with a knife to demand the rest, left, and was arrested when he returned a third time.
He’s free on bail. His agent, Raymond Brothers, declined to comment Tuesday.
Gordon was arrested last week in New York for driving with a forged license. He’s had other police run-ins this year.
Gordon played 11 years with the Bulls, Pistons, Charlotte and the Magic. He averaged 14.9 points per game.
