LAS VEGAS -- Nevada gambling regulators are investigating MGM Resorts International after Michael Jordan's underage son bragged on Twitter about partying at a nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip.

Nevada Gaming Control Board enforcement chief Jerry Markling said Monday that regulators are looking at whether the casino operator violated laws prohibiting underage drinking or gambling.

Markling says underage people often try to gamble or drink in Las Vegas. Punishment for venue operators depends on circumstances.

Jordan's 19-year-old son Marcus Jordan tweeted Aug. 20 about spending $35,000 at Haze at MGM Resorts' Aria Resort & Casino. The Central Florida guard was in town for his dad's fantasy basketball camp.

MGM Resorts and UCF officials declined comment.
