Michael Jordan’s 32-year-old son, Jeffrey Jordan, was arrested for allegedly assaulting a hospital employee on Friday night. The incident occurred after Scottsdale police rushed Jeffrey to the hospital for a head injury.

According to Scottsdale police officers, the former college basketball player was at Casa Amigos cocktail bar and Mexican restaurant on September 24. While at the restaurant, he “fell and hit his head,” TMZ Sports reported. Security summoned police officers who were already at the restaurant for a different call to assist Jeffrey.

The cops interrogated bar personnel to determine what happened. Sources say that Jeffrey slipped and hit the back of his head on one of the tables at the restaurant. His head started bleeding. Officers classified the event as “medical in nature” instead of criminal. The paramedics were sent to the scene to evaluate the injuries.

Reports suggest that Jeffrey was “combative” as he was escorted out of the restaurant. He was transported in an ambulance to receive medical treatment.
