Marcus Jordan Proves To Be The Nicest Person Ever Fined For Disturbing The Peace

Marcus Jordan, the youngest son of Bulls legend Michael Jordan, pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace in a plea deal in Omaha, Neb. Thursday.

The deal, which includes a $250 fine and court costs, means an obstruction of justice charge against Jordan will be dropped. Jordan was charged with disorderly conduct, obstruction of justice and resisting arrest last month when an off-duty police officer moonlighting as a security officer at an Embassy Suites hotel tried to break up an argument between Jordan and two women.

Steve Lefler, Jordan's attorney in Omaha, said his client was especially contrite after he discovered the security officer was a policeman and even went to the police station to apologize.

“I can assure you, after 35 years of being a lawyer, it’s the first time I’ve ever heard of anybody going to the police station to apologize,” Lefler said. “He’s just been a sweet kid to work with.”

Lefler said Jordan could have entered a written plea and saved a trip to Omaha for the hearing.

“Honestly, because he’s who he is, Marcus Jordan, we thought you guys (media) might go crazy if he wasn’t here,” Lefler said. “Truly, that was it. You guys would have thought that he’s given special treatment when he wouldn’t have been given special treatment.”

Jordan also made headlines recently when it was announced he left the basketball team at Central Florida.
