Catches Huge Break In Robbery Case

Ex-NBA star Ben Gordon can breathe a LITTLE easier … because he will NOT be charged with a felony stemming from his November robbery arrest in Los Angeles. 

TMZ Sports broke the story … 34-year-old Gordon was accused of flashing a knife and roughing up a manager at his old apartment complex in an effort to get his 4-figure security deposit back. (FYI, Gordon reportedly made $84 mil during his NBA career). 

Gordon fled from the scene and then returned AFTER cops had arrived — they arrested him on the spot. He was booked for felony robbery. 

Now, we’ve learned the L.A. County District Attorney has rejected the felony case — and kicked it over to the L.A. City Attorney to consider filing misdemeanor charges instead. 

So, it’s a huge break for Gordon … but he’s not out of the woods yet.
