Marcus Jordan Arrested: MJ's Son Booked After Disturbance Outside Hotel
Central Florida guard Marcus Jordan, the son of NBA legend Michael Jordan, was arrested early Sunday morning in Omaha, Nebraska.
The news comes from the Associated Press (via ESPN):
According to a news release, police responding to a call at the Embassy Suites found hotel security trying to subdue Marcus Jordan, who was having an argument with two women in the hotel driveway at 2:11 a.m. CT.
The release said Jordan was "very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative," and it took multiple officers to control and handcuff him.
Jordan, 21, is said to have since been released from Douglas County Department of Corrections.
This isn't the first time the youngest Jordan boy has found himself in the headlines. In late 2010, MGM Resorts International was under investigation after Jordan (underage at the time) bragged on Twitter about spending $35,000 at a Las Vegas Strip nightclub.
He later apologized and said the tweet was a mistake.
Such incidents are unfortunate to see for college athletes, but when Marcus Jordan makes a mistake, he can be sure—as the son of a legend—he'll be under the microscope.
The young basketball player is coming off his third straight productive season for the Knights. He averaged just under 36 minutes per game, averaging 13.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
The soon-to-be senior is expected to once again be a major contributor for the 2012-13 Knights, who are coming off a third-place Conference USA finish and NIT appearance.
It is unknown at this time how Jordan's arrest will affect his standing with the school and team, where up until last year he played with his older brother, Jeffrey.
Jeffrey, who is the first of Michael's two sons, transferred to UCF last year, but according to Sam Gardner of Fox Sports Florida, he abruptly left the team in January due to "personal reasons."
