Ben Gordonhas been arrested again … TMZ Sports has confirmed this time he was taken into custody on Tuesday after he allegedly threatened juice shop employees with a knife.
Cops in Stamford, Conn. tell us … they got a call at around 9:15 AM that the former NBA star was inside of a downtown-area Juice Kings acting aggressively and bizarrely while wielding a blade.
Authorities say officers arrived on the scene quickly … and were able to coax the 40-year-old out of the establishment without incident.
They say, however, the ex-Chicago Bulls guard became aggressive when they attempted to pat him down outside. They claim it then took several officers to subdue him and put him in cuffs.
Cops say an ensuing search of his person showed he had a folding knife clipped to his front pants pocket. They say when they searched his bag, he also had a stun gun and a pair of brass knuckles in his possession.
Gordon was arrested and transported to a local police station … but according to cops, he began acting so aggressively and so bizarrely, he was taken to a nearby hospital for a mental health evaluation.
Gordon was released back to cops a short time later, but authorities say he continued to act erratically. They claim a behavioral unit and some of Gordon’s family and friends were ultimately able to calm him down — and he was then processed.
Gordon was booked on several charges — including three felony counts of carrying a dangerous weapon and one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct. Cops say his family posted his $10,000 bond, and he was released at around 7 PM.
He’s due in court for a hearing on the matter later this month.
This is far from Gordon’s first run-in with the law … the former UConn star has been arrested a myriad of times in the last few years — including twice in 2022.
