UCF basketball player Marcus Jordan was some huge shoes to fill as the son of NBA legend Michael Jordan. As that wasn’t enough of a task for him to conquer, the young baller has been a magnet for trouble in the off season.
This past Sunday, the college star guard was arrested at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Omaha, Nebraska. According to several reports, local authority was notified by phone about a disturbance that was taking place on the outside of the hotel. Jordan was among one of the three arguers as he was said to be having a heated exchange of words with two females around 2:11 a.m. in the morning.
Arriving on the scene, officers walked up to hotel security attempting to control Jordan in the midst of the argument. Jordan was described as being “very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative” and it took several of them to take him down in order to securely handcuff him. Once he was cuffed, Jordan was taken to the Douglas County Department of Corrections for a list of things including resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing. His jail stay wasn’t long as he was released later that night.
Marcus Jordan has been no stranger to messy situations. In May, he got himself caught up on Twitter with the accidental proposition that he made to a porn star. And not to mention his Vegas tweet that sparked the MGM Resorts International investigation. Twitter is a deadly weapon even when you haven’t become a world famous ball player.
There is no doubt that Marcus Jordan is good at what he does as he averaged 13.7 points this past season at The University of Central Florida. But getting caught up in nonsense like this could hurt him in the long run.
