Marcus Jordan Fined $250 For 'Disturbing The Peace' After Summer Incident

Marcus Jordan has had a rather busy week as he appeared in an Omaha court on Wednesday, just a couple of days after deciding that he won't be playing basketball for Central Florida during his senior season of college.

Jordan, the son of the legendary Michael Jordan, was appearing in court on the charges brought against him in July for disturbing the peace -- the details of which were rather interesting:

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.

That report also states that it took multiple officers to corral Jordan and that he was "very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative."

Marcus pled no contest to the allegations, however, and was only handed a fine.

Marcus Jordan, son of former NBA great Michael Jordan, has been fined $250 after pleading no contest to disturbing the peace in connection with a disturbance outside a downtown Omaha hotel last month.

It'll be interesting to see the next step in Marcus's career now that both Central Florida and the Omaha incident are behind him.


Marcus Jordan Will Not Play Basketball During His Senior Year At UCF

Marcus Jordan has decided not to return for his senior season at UCF according to a report in the Chicago Tribune. Marcus is the youngest son of NBA legend Michael Jordan, the current owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.

This is the second time that Marcus Jordan has made headlines this summer. In July he was arrested at an Embassy Suites hotel in Omaha, Ne. and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstructing officers after an altercation with two women and hotel security,

The Knights basketball program -- along with the football program -- was cited with "lack of institutional control" and the NCAA hit each program with a one-year postseason ban in late July and Jordan had long been rumored not be returning to play basketball for a variety of reasons:

Jordan's older brother, Jeff Jordan, and best friend, A.J. Rompza, are no longer with the basketball program and are pursuing their own post-college opportunities.

Jordan has a variety of interests beyond basketball and may pursue business opportunities that would jeopardize his NCAA eligibility.
