Gordon was escorted from McDonalds at 600 N. Clark St. after he hit a 29-year-old male security guard in the face and threw him to the ground, police said. He also pushed a 21-year-old male security guard, police said.

Gordon, 39, was charged with two battery misdemeanors, police said. The security guards refused medical attention. 

This is the latest legal trouble for Gordon, who spent five seasons with the Bulls during his 11-year NBA career. Gordon was charged last month with assault, resisting arrest, contempt and child endangerment after he was seen punching his young son at LaGuardia Airport in New York, NBC reported
