Former Bulls guard Ben Gordon arrested after punching security guard at Chicago McDonald’s

CHICAGO (AP) — Former NBA guard Ben Gordon has been arrested after a McDonald’s Chicago security guard was punched in the face, police said.

Gordon, 39, was charged with assault and battery. Chicago Tribune reported on Saturday.

A 29-year-old man was hit in the face and knocked to the ground. The 21-year-old was pushed and also knocked 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 hitting his young son at LaGuardia Airport.

According to the Queens District Attorney’s Office, witnesses, including an American Airlines employee, saw Gordon yell at his son and punch him several times in the face after the boy dropped the book on the ground.

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

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

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