The manager gave Gordon a portion of the money and Gordon left the building.

Gordon, 34, was accused of punching the manager of a downtown apartment complex where he is renting, pulling a knife on the man and taking money that Gordon said was his security deposit.

In addition to the NY license plate incident, Gordon in June was arrested after pulling multiple fire alarms in his building in Los Angeles despite there not being a fire, according to reports.

Controversies around Gordon are not new.

Gordon, however, later returned to get the rest of the money - "a couple thousand dollars", according to the report - but was instead greeted by cops, who arrested him for felony robbery.

By the time Gordon returned to the scene, the police had been called and they were there investigating the incident.

He was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked and later released on $50,000 bail.

Ben Gordon continues to go coast to coast with his run-ins with the law.

Gordon's final National Basketball Association season came during the 2014-2015 campaign when he played in 56 games for the Orlando Magic.

Last month, he was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation after getting into an argument with a woman at his business in Mount Vernon, N.Y., according to media reports. Gordon was then immediately taken into custody by police and charged with felony robbery. "Hopefully with a contender because I still would love to win an National Basketball Association championship".
