I think most of these stories were greatly exaggerated. There was a time when Gordon's handlers were looking to straight up cash in on selling his redemption story and needed to make the path back sound as awful as possible.I don't have a dog in this fight, but Gordon does has a bad history..
"Gordon describes growing up poor and being thrown out of two middle schools for stealing electronics from students. He says he began his longstanding relationship with weed in the seventh grade, and added in Xanax in eighth grade. He was thrown out of his first high school as a sophomore, and at his new school, he joined the Six Deuce Harvard Park Brim Bloods, a satellite of the infamous L.A. gang.
During one of the many gang fights that broke out on the weekends, he took a bullet in his left arm during his junior year. He claims that he never "maliciously" shot anyone, but often had to fire his gun to escape trouble.
He admitted to selling drugs, "mostly weed" and dealing in counterfeit money. He says he and his partners stole cars almost every day. He says he committed armed robbery on numerous occasions to steal electronics.
Gordon said he smoked week every day in high school and drank vodka in class. He started drinking "lean'' every night as a junior, and was always game for an offer of Xanax, hydrocodone or oxycodone.
Five days after his 17th birthday, he was arrested for felony credit credit card theft and spent more than a month in jail. He landed at Baylor because he was on probation and had to live in Texas.
While there, he says he received up to six pounds of weed through the U.S. Mail every week that he'd sell around Texas for a $10,000 monthly profit."
Does that qualify as "thug" behavior? I'd say so.. But, people can change as they get older. Hopefully Gordon can do whatever he needs to do to get back on the right path.
