Former Central Florida guard Marcus Jordan appeared in court on Thursday to plead no contest in accordance with his July 1 arrest in Omaha, Nebraska, in what has been an eventful summer to say the least for the former University of Central Florida guard. Jordan was in Omaha for the U.S. Olmpic Swim trials, when he was arrested early that July morning for disturbing the peace and obstructing a police officer. The latter of the charges was dropped as part of a plea agreement.
Jordan was fined a whopping $250 for his actions, which he paid after his three-minute hearing according to CBS Sports. He also apologized profusely for his actions.
The youngest son (21) of NBA all-time great Michael Jordan, Marcus averaged 13.7 points per game last season, but made the news again this summer when it was announced that he wouldn’t be playing basketball for the Knights in what would be his senior year. UCF has been banned from the postseason for this upcoming season, which many believe to be the reason for Jordan’s decision to not return to the team.
Marcus had the opportunity to play with his older brother, Jeffrey Jordan, last season as the Knights went 22-11, finishing the season with a first round loss to Drexel in the N.I.T. Neither of Mike’s kids failed to make headlines while in college, it’s just too bad that they were consistently for the wrong reasons.
