"After a brief struggle, it took multiple officers to control and handcuff [Jordan]," a news release reported. He was described as "very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative."
The call to police came at 2:11 a.m. on Sunday morning, after Jordan got into a drunken altercation outside the Embassy Suites in Nebraska. Jordan was reportedly arguing with two women when an undercover officer called for backup in arresting Jordan.
The 21-year-old currently plays basketball for the University of Central Florida, where he averages 13.7 points per game. He has been compared to his father, who has been described by the National Basketball Association (NBA) as "the greatest basketball player of all time."
Michael Jordan has won numerous awards, including five Most Valuable Player awards, three All-Star MVP awards and induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009. Marcus is Jordan's youngest son and immediately began making a name for himself at the University of Central Florida.
Many fans are wondering what Michael thinks about his son's actions and whether there will be any recourse after Marcus' arrest.
"Does he realize he's embarrassing his Father and disrespecting his name?" asked Huffington Post reader penndl. "Being college age he should have a better handle on maturity. This young man may be headed for a fatal fall, stay tuned."
"Sorry kid. With a dad named Michael Jordan, whether you get drafted or not, you'll always be compared to him, and you'll never be as great. No seriously, that has to suck being MJ's son as a b-ball player. And I only say he'll never be as great because he'll never be as hungry," noted iRock.
