Nev. regulators probing Jordan son’s partying

Nevada gambling regulators are investigating MGM Resorts
International after Michael Jordan’s underage son bragged on
Twitter about partying at a nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip.

Nevada Gaming Control Board enforcement chief Jerry Markling
said Monday that regulators are looking at whether the casino
operator violated laws prohibiting underage drinking or
gambling.

Markling says underage people often try to gamble or drink in
Las Vegas. Punishment for venue operators depends on
circumstances.

Jordan’s 19-year-old son Marcus Jordan tweeted Aug. 20 about
spending $35,000 at Haze at MGM Resorts’ Aria Resort & Casino.
The Central Florida guard was in town for his dad’s fantasy
basketball camp.

MGM Resorts and UCF officials declined comment.
