Former NBA guard Ben Gordon was arrested Sunday in New York City for driving with a forged license plate.

According to a police report obtained by the New York Post's Tina Moore and Daniel Prendergast, Gordon was arrested around 9 p.m. ET following a routine traffic stop. The officer ran Gordon's plate and found a different registration expiration date than the one shown on the vehicle.

Gordon, 34, has been arrested three times in the last five months. In June, he was arrested after he allegedly pulled fire alarms at his apartment complex; there was no fire when officers responded to the scene.

In October, he was arrested and hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation after he allegedly locked himself and a woman in a store in Mount Vernon, New York. The woman said Gordon became physical and was throwing objects during an argument. Police saw Gordon with a box cutter and later found him in a bathroom.

On Sunday, Gordon was given a desk appearance ticket that will force him to return to court regarding the matter at a later date. There has been no word on the date of his next court appearance.

Gordon, the 2004-05 NBA Sixth Man of the Year, last played in the league for the Orlando Magic during the 2014-15 season.
