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.

Associated Press writer Antonio Gonzalez in Orlando, Fla., and

researcher Barbara Sambriski in New York contributed to this
