Jeffrey Jordan, Michael Jordan’s oldest son, allegedly assaulted hospital staff late Friday night in Arizona. Before this event, he was sent to the hospital after sustaining minor injuries at Casa Amigos in Scottsdale. Casa Amigos is a restaurant, dance club and bar. According to the police report, while in the bar, Jeffrey fell and banged his head. After the fall, he felt dizzy and disoriented.
Security staff at Casa Amigos tried to offer him medical attention, but the 32-year-old expressed pugnacious behavior when they tried escorting him off the property. Scottsdale PD were soon dispatched to Casa Amigos minutes later.
Furthermore, the restaurant manager was more concerned for Jeffrey’s well being, not filing a police report for fighting security staff. In other words, what happened at the bar was not a criminal investigation. However, after the ambulance drove him to the hospital, Jeffrey allegedly assaulted hospital staff inside the ER. It is unknown at this time if he attacked nurses, doctors or medical receptionists.
The hospital workers later filed a police report for aggravated assault, which is a felony. Aggravated assaults range from Class 6 to Class 2 in Arizona. Class 2 is the most severe. As of Saturday, Jeffrey Jordan has not been arrested or charged with any crimes, and he is still recovering in the hospital.
