Dolphins WR Arrested for Battery

November 15, 1998

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) _ Miami Dolphins wide receiver Charles Jordan was arrested after repeatedly refusing to leave a bar Saturday, then fought with officers as they tried to take him into custody, police said.

Jordan was charged with trespassing after a warning, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and resisting arrest without violence. He was released on $1,625 bond.

Detective Mike Reed said police were called to Iguana Cantina early Saturday because of altercations in the bar. Reed said Jordan had been asked repeatedly by club managers and officers to leave.

``He appeared to be intoxicated,″ Reed said. ``He was informed that if he did not leave he would be subject to arrest. His comment was: ’Well, I guess you’ll have to arrest me.‴

Jordan is on injured reserved and expected to miss the remainder of the season. He underwent surgery in October on his left groin.
