The son of legendary basketball player Michael Jordan is being accused of the aggravated assault of a healthcare professional after an accident in Arizona on Saturday, Sept. 25, caused him to go to a hospital.

Jeffrey Jordan, who is 32 years old, has been charged with assaulting members of the staff of a local Arizona hospital after being treated for an injury that was caused by an accident while he was in a bar, TMZ reported.

Jordan was at Casa Amigos, a local bar and Mexican restaurant, presumably eating when he fell and hit his head on a table. The restaurant called the Scottsdale Police Department, who said that the injury was “medical in nature” and sent Jordan to a local hospital, CBS Sports reported.

Jordan, who was left disoriented by the incident, reportedly started swinging against the security staff of the restaurant, becoming agitated and angry as the police escorted Jordan out of the establishment.

After being sent to a hospital, Jordan reportedly got aggressive while being treated for his injury, proceeding to assault a staff member of the healthcare facility. The hospital staff filed a report about the incident to the local police department, according to the Daily Beast.

The Maricopa Sheriff’s Office booked Jordan on the same day with one count of aggravated assault of a healthcare professional before releasing him. The act itself is a felony-level crime in the state of Arizona.

Jeffrey Jordan, while not as esteemed in the field of basketball as his father, played for three years at the college level with the University of Illinois and two years with the University of Central Florida. His average points per game were around two points.

Jordan is now the head of the Jordan Brand’s digital innovation department, as well as the Jordan Avakian Group, which he co-founded in 2020.
