Ex-NBA star Ben Gordon was hospitalized for psychiatric analysis over the weekend after Mount Vernon police responded to a confrontation between him and a lady at Gordon’s downtown enterprise.
Former NBA star and Mount Vernon native Ben Gordon has been arrested on felony theft fees, in accordance with TMZ Sports.
Police say Gordon threatened a man when he went to his former Los Angeles apartment complex in an attempt to get back a security deposit, TMZ reports.
Gordon allegedly threatened the man, who handed over a portion of the money and called police after the basketball player left the premises.

Gordon then returned to the apartment house to retrieve the rest of the money where he was arrested and charged with felony robbery, according to TMZ.
He was later released on $50,000 bail.
Recently, Gordon was arrested by police in New York City and charged with forging a license plate after a traffic stop. He was charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument, a misdemeanor, and released without bail.
Last month, Gordon was sent to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after police responded to a confrontation between him and his girlfriend in Mount Vernon.
He opened his new sports-training and rehab business in Mount Vernon, Of Our Own, in September. On Oct. 21, police officers responded to a call for assistance to find a woman crying inside and claiming she was locked in.
He was not charged but instead sent to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Harrison for evaluation.
In June, he was arrested in Los Angeles after police accused him of setting off fire alarms in an apartment building. Gordon missed a court appearance in that case and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Originally from Mount Vernon, Gordon led the University of Connecticut to a national championship as a junior in 2004 before entering the NBA draft.
