Ben Gordon Was Arrested For Pulling A Bunch Of Fire Alarms After Finding Himself Locked Out Of His Apartment
TMZ- Ex-NBA player Ben Gordon was arrested in L.A. on Thursday morning after allegedly freaking out at his apartment complex and pulling multiple fire alarms ... TMZ Sports has learned.
We're told 34-year-old Gordon -- who played for the Bulls, Pistons and Bobcats -- was apparently locked out of his apartment and went into meltdown mode ... pulling fire alarms inside the building. LAPD and L.A.
City Fire responded -- but there was no fire. Instead, they found Gordon and arrested him for falsely activating a fire alarm, a misdemeanor.
He's been taken into custody.
I don't know what type of life Ben Gordon is currently living. I'm betting he made a decent chuck of change during his NBA career and isn't exactly in dire straights. That's why when I heard that he was frantically pulling fire alarms after being locked out of his likely swanky Los Angeles apartment on a random Thursday morning only one thought came to mind...my man had them bubble guts.
Maybe the former UConn star turned productive NBA 6th man has an awful temper. Maybe he was up all night drinking and was fueled into an intoxicated rage by stupidly locking himself out as the sun was coming up. Hell if I know what truly made him run around pulling fire alarms like he has planned the world's worst senior prank. I just think the most logical explanation is that he went into survival mode when he realized that the nearest toilet was behind lock and he was without key. This story makes very little sense, but so does the thought process of an individual that desperately needs to use the bathroom. Ben Gordon may very well may have been feeling a bit irritable after failing to down his morning coffee, but it's also very possible that his morning coffee ran right through him and was nearing the god forsaken finish line.
