LeBron James Or Michael Jordan Argument Lands One Man In Jail

A Pennsylvania man was arrested Saturday after an argument over the merits of basketball players Michael Jordan and LeBron James, the Centre Daily Times first reported.

Though it's unclear who Daniel Mondelice, 22, believes to be the better player, he ultimately lost the argument after being charged with aggravated assault for allegedly resorting to violence to make his point.

After posting a $30,000 unsecured bail, Mondelice returned to the apartment where the argument happened, only to be arrested again after becoming argumentative and refusing to leave. He is now unable to post bail, according to the Associated Press.

Daniel Mondelice, 22, was first taken into custody by State College police about 3:50 a.m. Saturday after police responded to his Calder Way apartment about a reported fight, according to police. Mondelice is accused of assaulting another man after an argument over the better basketball player, Michael Jordan or LeBron James, turned physical, police said.

Mondelice was arraigned before District Judge Steven Lachman on charges of felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor of making terroristic threats and simple assault. He was released on $30,000 unsecured bail and told not to return to the apartment, police said.

Mondelice was charged with felony criminal trespass and misdemeanor harassment after the second incident and was arraigned before Lachman a second time Sunday morning. The judge set bail at $10,000 and Mondelice was taken to Centre County Correctional Facility.

Preliminary hearings on both sets of charges are scheduled for Wednesday.
