09/21/16 - WR Josh Gordon has been issued an arrest warrant in a child paternity case. The case stems from a complaint made in Cuyahoga County (Ohio) Juvenile Court from Christina Lockhart of Maple Heights, which is outside Cleveland. She claims Gordon is the father of her now 1-year-old daughter, according to Cleveland.com. The complaint against Gordon was first filed in July 2015. The warrant was issued by a judge on Aug. 31 after Gordon did not respond to subpoenas sent to several different addresses in Los Angeles and Cleveland, demanding that he take a DNA test. Gordon was due to appear at a hearing on Aug. 31 but was not present, which led to the warrant.
