Illinois Teen Takes ‘Be Like Mike’ Too Far, Breaks In NBA Legend’s Home
Michael Jordan's Highland Park mansion is in the news again and it's not for a good reason. Not only is the home still up for sale, but it's also not immune to teenage mischief.
An 18-year-old and his younger partner-in-crime (literally) stand accused of breaking into the basketball legend's luxurious abode.
Raiden Hagedorn from Mundelein faces charges of criminal damage to property and criminal trespassing to a residence with a person present. I guess they didn't get the memo that it's not wise to mess with His Airness.
Michael Jordan's Highland Park, IL Home Burglarized
The burglary was reported on April 4th, and the police were quick to respond that evening. It's unclear what exactly the dynamic duo was up to, but it's safe to say they didn't get away with any Air Jordans.
Perhaps they were hoping to score some memorabilia or maybe just wanted to shoot some hoops on the regulation-sized basketball court.
It's not surprising that Michael Jordan's mansion is a hot commodity, given its original hefty price tag of a whopping $29 million. The mansion sits on a massive 7-acre plot and with nine bedrooms, 15 full bathrooms, and four half-bathrooms.
It also features a tennis court and a putting green, so the burglars could have practiced their swing instead of getting in trouble.
It's currently listed for $14,855,000, the digits of which total 23. (1+4+8+5+5=23 — Jordan's longtime jersey number)
