Last October, former NBA player Ben Gordon was arrested for allegedly assaulting his son and police in a New York airport. A month later, Gordon was arrested in Chicago for allegedly punching a Mcdonald’s security guard.

Tuesday, Gordon was arrested on weapons and threatening charges after police were called to a Stamford, Conn., juice shop because of his behavior, as the Associated Press and other sources reported.

Just prior to 10 a.m. Tuesday, police were called to the shop because of “a male acting aggressively and in a bizarre manner,” Stamford Assistant Police Chief Richard Conklin told the Associated Press. Police subdued and arrested the man, identified as Gordon, and on him found a folding knife, stun gun and brass knuckles, Conklin said.

Gordon, who turned 40 the day he was arrested, was released late Tuesday on a $10,000 bond, according to police. He was officially charged with three felony counts of carrying a dangerous weapon, two counts of second-degree threatening (a misdemeanor), and interfering with an officer, according to the Stamford Advocate.

The juice bar owner told the Advocate the employees were more confused than anything by Gordon’s behavior.

Whatever is leading to this behavior and arrests for Gordon, hopefully he gets the help he needs.

Gordon played his college ball at UConn, where he led them to the 2004 national championship, and the arrest came hours after the Huskies won another national title.

After that 2004 title, Gordon was drafted third overall by the Chicago Bulls and went on to have an 11-year NBA career, highlighted by being named the 2005 Sixth Man of the Year. He last played in the NBA for Orlando in 2015.
