Ex-NBA star Ben Gordon was arrested again this week … after he allegedly attacked two McDonald’s security guards in Chicago.
TMZ Sports has learned … 39-year-old Gordon was taken into custody around 3:30 AM on Friday. Chicago PD says the 2004 third-overall pick was being escorted out of the Mickey D’s when he got physical.
Police say Gordon struck a 29-year-old male guard in the face and threw him to the ground … before shoving a second 21-year-old male guard to the ground as well.
It’s unclear why Gordon was being kicked out of the restaurant in the first place.
Gordon was booked for two counts of misdemeanor battery — cause bodily harm and make physical contact — as a result of the alleged altercation. The two guards declined medical attention.
The arrest comes less than one month after Gordon was accused of punching his 10-year-old son in the head at an airport for dropping a book.
