Marcus Jordan Had Some Problems with Authorities

While in college in 2009, Marcus caused the basketball team to lose its partnership with Adidas in his first year. During an exhibition game, he refused to remove his Nike Air Jordan for the Adidas brand.

His actions were a sign of loyalty to Nike and his father. However, Adidas would not stand for it and ended its $3 million deal sponsorship contract with the University of Central Florida.

In 2010, Marcus also got into trouble with the authorities after he tweeted that he and his brother spent over $50,000 at a Las Vegas pool lounge and nightclub. The Nevada Gaming Control Board had to investigate his visit because he was underage.

In 2012, they arrested him outside a hotel in Nebraska after a drunken altercation with the police. The arrest occurred during an argument with two women.

The police charged him with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and obstructing justice before booking him into the Douglas County Department of Corrections.
