Michael Jordan’s HS Coach Arrested at Home Where Dead Body Was Found

Michael Jordan’s high school coach Clifton Herring had already been in the news this week, gaining loads of attention when Sports Illustrated featured him in a story with the headline “Did This Man Really Cut Michael Jordan?” in the new issue. Now, just days after that piece came out, WECT is reporting that Herring was arrested with two others at a home where a dead body was found in Wilmington, NC. Herring was charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing that arrest: “Detectives with the Wilmington Police Department found a body while searching a home in Wilmington Friday for evidence relating to a missing person’s case, and WECT has learned that one of three men arrested at the home the night before used to be Michael Jordan’s basketball coach while he attended Laney High School. Reports say police arrested Clifton Herring in the 1100 block of Cowan Street on Thursday night. One of the men was arrested at the home for an outstanding warrant, and Herring was charged with resisting, delaying and obstructing that arrest. The address where police found the woman’s body buried Friday is also the same address that Herring listed as his home address when arrested. Herring was recently featured in Sports Illustrated Magazine, discussing his connection with Michael Jordan. Wilmington police have not identified the woman who they found dead in the backyard, but they say they have reason to believe it could be the body of a 24-year-old who was reported missing earlier this week.”

    Cutting MJ is definitely criminal, even if he was in tenth grade.

    He listed it ashis home address? Bad decision. Dude is fucced. Why would anyone bury a body in their backyard?? Out in the woods somewhere, or burn it. You don’t shtt where you stay. What a dunce.

    Jordan put the body there. He’s still pissed about being cut.
    He ALWAYS gets his man…

  • c.a.

    Michael Jordan; where if one man says something enough, it becomes the ‘truth’. I thought it was well documented he didn’t get cut? Oh well, guess it adds to the ‘legend’.

    the coach suffers a mental disability paranoia he is messed up in the head

  • Blue

    It is clear from the story that the coach isn’t the one being accused of the murder, so why is this news? In fact, it seems as if there should be NO MENTION of the coach, MJ, sports Illustrated… Damn’ why even arrest the man when you know he suffers from mental illness?

    Mental illness or not, if you’re mentally competent enough to obstruct the search of a missing woman you deserve to get arrested. All you STUPID IDIOTS asking why he’s being arrested or what it has to do with him should stfu and go read a book.

  • bigkampbeezy

    @dazzy… you’re the idiot! I’m from wilmington and know Pop. His mental illness is very bad. He doesn’t respond to things the way we do. He has a big heart. The body was at his house because he would let the homeless use his house and yard to get of the streets. One of them didi it. U jerk face

  • bigkampbeezy

    And he didn’t cut Mike. He put him on j.v because at the time there were better upperclass guards on varsity. He put him on j.v so he could get mins instead of wasting away on the bench.

    Just MJ letting the motherf*cker no he aint forgotten.

    Bigkampbeezy: I don’t give a damn how he’s viewed. A girl went missing, he was being uncooperative, his azz got hauled off. You’re a moron if you think him being hyper-paranoid affords him sympathy. His “illness” and her death are MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE d-bag. Ask that girl’s family how they feel about his illness. They give a damn about him even less than I do, azzhole.

  • bigkampbeezy

    Dummy….. I mean dazzy, the girls parents were on the local news saying they aren’t blaming him for what happened because they said they know he had nothing to do with it. The man did it without Pop knowing. Learn your facts and don’t judge, leave that to God… goat mouth!
