6:00 PM PT -- According to Cleveland.com, Gordon submitted a DNA test this afternoon and settled the warrant. His attorney said he was unaware of the case and didn't realize he was supposed to be in court.
An arrest warrant has been issued for NFL star Josh Gordon, 'cause the 25-year-old blew off a judge several times in a paternity case.
According to court docs, an Ohio woman claims Gordon is the father of her 1-year-old daughter ... and filed a lawsuit against him last year seeking child support. She said the child was born on 5/14/2015.
A judge ordered the Cleveland Browns wide receiver to provide a DNA sample and attend hearings -- but Gordon failed to comply with any of the orders -- so a warrant was issued for his arrest on August 31.
When he turns himself in, his bond will be set at $500. The warrant can be recalled if he submits a DNA test.
The Browns issued a statement, saying, "We are aware of the situation. Josh and his attorney are working with the Cuyahoga County Courts to resolve this matter. We have no further comment at this time."
