For a guy who just got arrested for causing a disturbance outside an Omaha hotel, Central Florida guard Marcus Jordan sure doesn't look that upset in his mug shot.

Omaha Police charged the younger son of NBA legend Michael Jordan with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing early Sunday morning after he got into a heated argument with two women in the driveway of an Embassy Suites hotel. The police report described Jordan as "very animated, intoxicated and uncooperative," which perhaps explains the unusually chipper mug shot.

According to the Omaha World-Herald, Jordan had planned to attend the U.S. Olympic Swim Trials this last weekend to cheer for a high school friend Conor Dwyer and Dwyer's training partner, Ryan Lochte. Instead, he spent a few hours at Douglas County Correctional Center before being released by late Sunday afternoon.

The incident in Omaha certainly isn't Jordan's first foray into the headlines for reasons he'd probably have preferred to avoid.

He cost Central Florida its shoe deal with adidas as a freshman when he refused to wear a brand that wasn't Nike. He caused a stir in 2010 when he tweeted that he dropped $56,000 during a two-day spree at the Mirage Resort Casino in Las Vegas. And he famously propositioned a porn star via Twitter earlier this year before claiming that was a mistake.

What makes his arrest in Omaha a tad different is it comes with Jordan's basketball future in limbo.

Questions about Jordan's future at UCF began last month with a report from sports gossip site TerezOwens.com that he is expected to pursue business interests rather than return to school. A UCF spokesman confirmed the next day Jordan is not enrolled in summer session at the school but insisted the senior guard is expected back for fall semester.

Jordan averaged a solid 13.9 points per game last season, but his 37.6 percent shooting and 31.3 percent shooting from behind the arc both have room for improvement. No doubt the UCF staff would prefer him to spend more time focusing on that and less on some of his other extracurricular activities this offseason.
