OMAHA, Neb. — Marcus Jordan, a son of Michael Jordan, was fined $250 and court costs Thursday after pleading no contest to disturbing the peace during an argument with a woman outside a Nebraska hotel last month.
Marcus Jordan, 21, also had been charged with obstructing a police officer, but that was dropped as part of a plea agreement.
He was in Omaha for the U.S. Olympic swim trials July 1 and arrested after police responded to an early-morning call at an Embassy Suites hotel. According to a police report, an off-duty officer working security for the hotel was trying to subdue Jordan as he argued with two women in the driveway. Jordan was “very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative.”
Dressed in a sport coat, tie and black slacks, the son of the NBA great appeared in Douglas County Court with his Omaha attorney, Steve Lefler. He paid his fine after a three-minute hearing and left the courtroom without speaking to reporters. A courthouse worker stopped Jordan outside and had her picture taken with him.
Jordan is enrolled at Central Florida but no longer a member of the basketball team. He averaged 13.7 points for UCF last season.
