Michael Jordan's Underage Son Wilds Out In Las Vegas, Casino Under Investigation


Michael Jordan’s Son Puts Casino In Trouble

Apparently gambling runs in the family as Michael Jordan’s son Marcus is bringing some unwanted heat to MGM Resorts International.

The resort came under investigation from gaming officials  after the underage Marcus tweeted about his wild weekend in Vegas and a stop at a strip club.

Nevada Gaming Control Board enforcement chief Jerry Markling said they  were examining whether the casino operator violated laws prohibiting drinking or gambling by minors.

Markling added that many people under 21 try to gamble and drink in Las Vegas but punishment depends on the circumstances.

According to The Associated Press, the 19-year-old Young Jordan tweeted on August 20th  about spending $35,000 at Haze at Aria Resort & Casino.

“Last night was stupid… 35K at Haze,” the University of Central Florida sophomore guard said. “Totals 50K something the whole day.”

Since the investigation, the tweet has been deleted and Marcus Jordan told Fox Sports that it was a mistake and he has discussed the situation with his parents.

“I didn’t mean it the way it came across.  My family and friends know the type of person I am,” stated Marcus.

Marcus & Jeffrey Jordan

Marcus’s brother Jeffrey was also along for the fun as well as Marcus’ teammate A.J. Rompza as all three were in town for # 23’s fantasy basketball camp.

This also  isn’t the first time Marcus Jordan didn’t have to play by the rules.

Last year, Marcus cost his school  $3 million after the University of Central Florida lost its sponsorship from Adidas.

The shoe brand pulled out of the deal after Marcus refused to wear Adidas shoes like the rest of his teammates.  Marcus contends that he only wears Air Jordans because they hold “special meaning” to his family.

GTFOH… I guess some people don’t have to adhere to the rules.
