Currently suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is in trouble with the law again this time for ignoring several subpoenas regarding a paternity case.
A judge issued a warrant for the arrest of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon after he failed to respond to several months worth of subpoenas in a paternity case.
The case stems from a complaint made in juvenile court from Christina Lockhart of Maple Heights, who says Gordon is the father of her now 1-year-old daughter.
Lockhart filed the complaint July 2, 2015, saying no one else is presumed to be the father, other than Gordon.
Subpoenas were sent to Gordon in Los Angeles, and several Cleveland addresses. Gordon never responded to them, according to court records.
The Browns, the NFL, Addidas and powerful sports agent Drew Rosenhaus, who represents Gordon, were also issued subpoenas in the case.
Gordon was ordered to provide a DNA sample to the court by Sept. 25, 2015, but never did so.
After a lengthy suspension, The NFL conditionally reinstated Gordon in July, and is eligible to return to the field after two more games, on Oct. 9th the Patriots.
Gordon hasn’t played in a regular-season game since December 2014.
