Shortly after his arrest, he was booked under two misdemeanor battery charges including causing bodily harm.

As per reports, the 39-year-old former athlete will appear for his first court which is scheduled to take place next month.


Gordon’s recent arrest joins the growing list of his off-court-related problems. He was taken into custody for punching his son but was released on bail. However, after his release, he was once again detained for his connection to a 2020 assault case in Manhattan.

The Queens district attorney’s office reported that six witnesses claim to have seen Ben Gordon punching his son multiple times in the face for dropping a book.

According to reports, he was traveling with his young son in New York when the incident took place at LaGuardia Airport.

Furthermore, an American Airlines staff member was among the witnesses and was the one to inform the cops of Gordon’s alleged attack against his son. 

The former Chicago Bulls shares his ten-year-old son, Elijah with his 32-year-old former fiance Sascha Smith.

The complaint stated that Gordon allegedly hit Elijah with a ‘closed fist, smacking the victim in the face.’

Moreover, the reports mention that the ex-shooting guard tried to resist the officer. He supposedly assaulted them when they attempted to put handcuffs on him.

Meanwhile, he was charged with several counts such as assault, resisting arrest, contempt, and child endangerment.

A short hearing took place on 14th October but was adjourned until December this year.
