Ben Gordon, who played 11 seasons in the NBA and won an NCAA national championship while in college, has been arrested on both weapons and threatening charges after acting erratically in a juice shop in Connecticut, according to police.
Right before 10:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, multiple people who called 911 claimed that “a male acting aggressively and in a bizarre manner” was in a Stamford juice shop, according to assistant police chief Richard Conklin via TMZ Sports.
The male, who was later identified to be Gordon, continued his behavior when authorities got to the scene and tried to place him under arrest, said Conklin.
Eventually, police subdued the former baller and put him in handcuffs. When searched, police found three different weapons on Gordon — a folding knife, stun gun and brass knuckles.

In total, Gordon was charged with second-degree threatening, carrying a dangerous weapon and interfering with an officer.
After being arrested, Gordon was then transported to the police detention center, and then to a hospital afterwards to undergo a mental health evaluation, according to Conklin. Gordon was released Tuesday on $10,000 bond. (RELATED: LeBron James Stares Down And Chirps At Russell Westbrook While Getting Blown Out)
Gordon’s juice shop incident is just the latest in multiple police interactions that Gordon has had in the past few months alone. In October 2022, police charged him after he allegedly punched his son at LaGuardia Airport in New York City. A month later in November, he was hit with a misdemeanor after allegedly punching a McDonald’s security guard in Chicago.
