Report: Ben Gordon Arrested In 'Fire Alarm Meltdown'

The former UConn star was reportedly arrested today.

TMZ Sports is reporting that Ben Gordon has been arrested in a bizarre incident at his apartment complex in Los Angeles.

Gordon, 34, was reportedly arrested after allegedly freaking out inside his apartment complex and pulling multiple fire alarms.

From TMZ:

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.

Gordon starred collegiately at UConn, winning the national title as a junior in 2004. He was the third overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft and was the league's sixth man of the year in 2005. Gordon played in the league from 2004-15.
