But at the hospital, Jordan became involved in an altercation with hospital staff and was arrested for aggravated assault on a health care professional, according to the report. He was later released from the Scottsdale city jail pending further legal action.
Jordan has not been formally charged in connection with the case, KNXV-TV of Phoenix reported. The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office will review the matter and decide on any charges, the report said.
Jeffrey Jordan played college basketball at the University of Illinois and later at the University of Central Florida, between 2007 and 2012. He is the oldest child of Michael Jordan and his ex-wife Juanita Jordan.
