Former Chiefs TE Richard Gordon is in trouble

You remember the name Richard Gordon right? He was a journeyman tight end who made appearances with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013 and 2014. The third tight end hardly ever gets noticed so it’s understandable if it doesn’t ring a bell.

Gordon was arrested after a police report says they were called to the scene because of a man spotted hitting a woman outside of a car.

When officers arrived they found Gordon's girlfriend, who said she lives with him and has a 3-year-old child with him, the report said. The woman said Gordon started acting crazy and flipped out while she was driving him to pick up his car near Tootsie's strip club, the report said.

The woman said Gordon punched her arm several times and slapped her in the face, the report said. The woman had redness, swelling and bruising, the report noted.

There was also a gun and marijuana found in his car.

The report said the AR-15 was going to be used to shoot up the Office nightclub after a confrontation Gordon had the night before. Gordon's girlfriend said he hadn't slept in days and has been Baker Acted three times in the past, the report said.
