Ex-NBA player Ben Gordon was arrested in L.A. Monday afternoon - after allegedly roughing up a guy at an apartment building. and leaving with several thousand dollars of his money, TMZ Sports has learned. Eventually, the man gave Gordon some money and got him to go away, but a short time later, Gordon returned when he realized that all of the money that he was apparently owed wasn't there.

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.

Gordon was released on $50,000 bail, TMZ reported.

Gordon, who last played in an National Basketball Association game with the Magic in 2015, has had a busy year getting into trouble with the law.

LAPD public information officer Irma Mota said police officers arrived at 9:10 a.m. Saturday at a downtown Los Angeles apartment complex, where Gordon had been renting two apartments. Gordon failed to appear in court later that month, prompting a judge to issue a bench warrant for his arrest.

The Mount Vernon, New York, native has had four brushes with the law in the past five months. The woman told officialsthey had an argument and that Gordon flipped out.

A witness intervened and Gordon left again only to return again after the victim called police, who had responded to the scene by the time Gordon returned. He was not charged in the incident.

Gordon's LA arrest comes a little over a week after he was nabbed in Manhattan during a auto stop for driving with a forged license. "Hopefully with a contender because I still would love to win an National Basketball Association championship".
