MGM Resorts International was under investigation after the underage son of basketball icon Michael Jordan bragged on Twitter about partying at a Las Vegas Strip nightclub, Nevada gambling regulators said Monday.

Officials were examining whether the casino operator violated laws prohibiting drinking or gambling by minors, said Jerry Markling, Nevada Gaming Control Board enforcement chief.

People under 21 often try to gamble or drink in Las Vegas, but the punishment for casino operators depends on the circumstances, Markling said.

Jordan’s 19-year-old son, Marcus, tweeted Aug. 20 about spending $35,000 at Haze nightclub at Aria Resort & Casino.
