From Bleacher Report:
Jordan considered entering the NBA draft. Then he changed his mind and decided to return to St. John’s. But his academics had slipped, so he likely would have been ineligible his junior year. He was drafted by the Delaware 87ers, the Sixers G-League affiliate in 2015. They played in Newark, Delaware, right near the old neighborhood. After 11 games, Jordan was released.
On Memorial Day weekend in 2016, Jordan was outside the Athletic Recreation Center. According to reports from CSN Philly and Philly.com, two people approached him and his friends, who were inside a car, to buy marijuana, and things erupted between the two groups. Jordan’s group allegedly tried to rob the other two men, and when the two men fled, one was shot in the arm, with Jordan alleged to have pulled the trigger.
A few days later, at 2:03 a.m. on June 1, Jordan ran a red light, according to reports. He jumped out of his car and ran. Police arrested him after a chase. He was charged with robbery, criminal conspiracy, weapons charges and attempted murder, among others.
He’d tried to leave. But the neighborhood had pulled him back in, and his trial is scheduled for Sept. 20.
