Marcus Jordan Learns a Hard Lesson: If you Are Underage Drinking and Gambling, Don't Tweet About It

Underage exploits and social media just don’t mix.  

It’s a hard lesson for Michael Jordan’s son Marcus, who is under investigation by Nevada gambling regulators, for some recent bad behavior during a trip to Sin City.

The 19-year-old son of NBA legend Michael Jordan is being looked at following a recent trip to the city which involved underage drinking and gambling by the college basketball star.   

The investigation was sparked thanks to some misguided posts on Twitter by Jordan.  He tweeted, “Last night was stupid … 35k at Haze… Totals 50k something the whole day.. Damn!! Going to the pool again today.. Gotta relax!”

The tweets in question were quickly removed, but their fallout is still being felt by the Jordan family.  Also to be determined is any punishment for the casino operator who may have served Marcus during his visit.

It’s definitely a good lesson for everyone who easy our words can come back to haunt us – even if we say it in 140 words or less!
