Former NBA Player Ben Gordon Placed In Psych Ward After Bizarre Behavior

Some rather troubling news to report in regards to former NBA player Ben Gordon, who has reportedly placed in a psych ward.

This comes after the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award winner was reportedly brandishing a knife, locked in a gym, asking people to ‘come at him’.

Per TMZ:

FYI, Gordon was hospitalized for psychiatric evaluation over the weekend after cops responded to his business, Of Our Own — a sports rehab and recovery center.

According to the police report, Gordon’s girlfriend claimed Ben had locked her in the gym — and was going berserk with a blade. Cops eventually went inside the gym, found Gordon in the bathroom and took him into custody. He was then transported to a nearby hospital.

TMZ also suggested that Gordon’s weird behavior had been doing on for months.

The former UConn great played parts of 11-seasons for the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets) and Orlando Magic.
