Michael Jordan’s Son Arrested After Omaha Hotel Scuffle
Jordan, 21, was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing, according to a statement released by the Omaha Police Department.
Police were dispatched to an Embassy Suites hotel around 2 a.m. yesterday and found Jordan arguing with two women in the driveway, according to the statement.
“The subject was very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative,” the police said in the statement. After a brief struggle, it took multiple officers to control and handcuff the suspect, police said.
Jordan, who plays basketball at the University of Central Florida, was booked at the Douglas County Department of Corrections and later released. Police said they didn’t know if was represented by an attorney.
Michael Jordan, a five-time National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player, had no comment on the arrest, spokeswoman Estee Portnoy said in an e-mail.
The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Jordan averaged 13.7 points last season as a junior at Central Florida.
“After gathering all of the facts, we will deal with this situation in an appropriate manner,” the school’s athletic department said in a statement.
