MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. — Two players on the Muskegon Heights Public School Academy basketball team are facing felony armed robbery charges in connection with a cab driver robbery.

Jeff Jordan, 17, and 18-year-old Carlos Hudson were arraigned Monday in 60th District Court, according to Muskegon County Prosecutor D.J. Hilson.

The two men face potential life sentences for the Dec. 5 incident, where they allegedly robbed a taxi driver at gunpoint in the 2000 block of Dyson Street.

According to Hilson, the two had their faces covered during the alleged incident, but were later located in Muskegon with money and a gun.

They are both charged with armed robbery, a life felony, and felony firearm possession.  A preliminary examination is scheduled for both men at 2 p.m. Dec. 19.  Both are currently being held in the Muskegon County Jail, Jordan on a $100,000 bond and Hudson on a $50,000 bond.

Jordan is a senior guard on the Muskegon Heights Public School Academy boys basketball team.  Hudson is a junior forward.

    Easy now George, Jerry, Billy. I get what you all mean and what you say is based on real past observations, but something makes me feel a little sad for these two young men. That has never happened before to me – strange days, I guess.

    Muskegon Heights is a rough area surrounded by what honestly could be a great part of the state situated on beautiful Lake Michigan.

    This story is just too sad and I am almost certain that these two young men had no positive role models in their lives and think that THUG LIFE is real and rewarding – just plain stupid – hopefully others will learn – I know I will read this story to my two young sons as a warning to them.

    It’s time to not point fingers and feel “bad” anymore. This is the same story that is happening in every black neighborhood in every city in the U.S. This is not unique. Look in every newspaper across the US and see blacks killing blacks or blacks assaulting whites or black terrorism or robbery etc etc etc. Enough is enough. No excuses. Nobody else behaves as badly. … Nobody. YES, it’s about the family. It’s no wonder 73% of black kids have broken families because the behavior you see on the streets reflects this. This will only continue unless the feds occupy black neighborhoods to babysit them. What else could be done?? Honestly, what else? Maybe taking away some subsidies. .. but leaders won’t help. Media doesn’t help. They do just the opposite and egg on the notion of racism. Some blacks probably feel vilified for their behavior. This is a sick society that won’t take care of its problems because it may “offend”.

    Many people have been studied by investigators trying to find an available cemetery plot to be transported to the deceased.
