Former NBA player and Mount Vernon resident Ben Gordon is reportedly facing charges in New York after being caught with a forged license plate.

According to multiple reports , Gordon was arrested following a traffic stop in Manhattan on Sunday night near the corner of West 129th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.

Gordon was reportedly issued a desk appearance ticket and is due back in court later this year to answer charges. It was first reported by the New York Post.

This is just the latest run-in with the law for Goron. In June he was arrested for allegedly pulling fire alarms when there was no fire at his Los Angeles apartment complex, and last month, he was hospitalized following a bizarre incident with a woman at his Mount Vernon business when he barricaded himself in a back room.

The former Mount Vernon High School basketball standout has won the Sixth Man of the Year award in the NBA and played for several teams in the league, last with the Orlando Magic in 2015.
