Former NBA player Ben Gordon was arrested at LaGuardia Airport on Monday for allegedly hitting his 10-year-old son, sources said.
Gordon was waiting for a flight to Chicago when Port Authority police prevented him from entering the plane and handcuffed him over the alleged abuse at 8:45 p.m., police sources told the Post.
His son was escorted by an aunt and taken to Long Island Jewish Children’s Hospital for evaluation, the sources said.
Gordon, a shooting guard who once played for the Chicago Bulls, was processed at the Port Authority police station. Charges against him are pending.
Police sources said two port officials suffered minor injuries during the arrest, although it was not immediately clear how or where they were injured.
Gordon, who won the sixth man of the year award as a rookie, has been arrested several times in the past.
He got arrested for an alleged assault and robbery in 2017. He was also busted for driving with a fake license plate and setting off fire alarms inside his LA block when there was no fire.
