Ben Gordon, a former NBA star, is a well-known phenomenon because of his shots on the basketball court. He had a number of legal complaints filed against him; now it seems one more has been added. Recently, former NBA player Ben Gordon arrested because of being suspected of hitting his son at airport.

On Monday, he was detained at an airport after being accused of assaulting his son, who is 10 years old. According to TMZ Sports, Around nine o’clock at night, Gordon was handcuffed as he awaited a flight from New York’s LaGuardia airport to Chicago. The New York Post reported that two cops were hurt during the arrest, but no more information about the incident has been made public.

The third-overall choice in the NBA Draft in 2004 was taken to the Port Authority police station for questioning, and an aunt then brought her kid to a nearby hospital to be examined.

In 2004, Gordon and Jim Calhoun of UCONN won the NCAA Championship. Over the course of his 11-year career, Gordon averaged 15 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game.


Ex-NBA star has a history of legal troubles outside the court; in June 2017, he was detained after it was claimed he panicked at an apartment complex and activated the fire alarms. He was taken into custody for allegedly assaulting a man in an apartment five months later.

In 2020, Gordon opened up about his struggles with depression, confessing that “I was obsessed with killing myself,” but he also sought treatment to improve his mental health. However, whats your take on his recent act? Let us know in the comments. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
