More details about the whole incident

According to the Illinois-based newspaper, a second individual who was a minor was also taken into custody. Highland Park Police Deputy Chief William Bonaguidi has not answered any questions about the alleged suspect as he’s a juvenile.

Sara Avalos, a communications specialist with the Lake County state’s attorney’s office has stated that the police authorities don’t suspect that Raiden wanted to take something from Jordan’s house.

In the year 2012, Michael put the house for sale for a record-setting $29 million. The massive house consists of a total of nine bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, and an indoor basketball court. It also has a guest house, a 500-bottle wine cellar, and a custom wood-trimmed cigar parlor.

The mansion was built in the year 1995. Michael and his wife Juanita Jordan raised their three children in the house while they were married. At the end of the day, Jordan couldn’t find a buyer for the house. The following year, the house was not purchased at an auction for the reserve price of $13 million.

During an interview with the Sun-Times, realtor Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner had nothing but good things to say about the house. She said, “It’s such a beautiful house. Every weekend people from all over the world came to see Michael’s house.”

A neighbor chimed in, “And everyone who came got out and took pictures in front of the gate.” We must say, the Illinois House of the NBA star is beautiful. Stay tuned with us for the latest updates from the world of showbiz.
