I don't agree that there is proof that there was no coup. But it doesn't matter. Hamzah fraternized with people that are against the non-democratic government of which his brother is the King , for either the good of the Jordanian people or his own ego, or both. He did this from within the Royal Compound where he and his brother live, and has now been metaphorically spanked and put in time-out. He can leave when he's freed, stay and keep his mouth shut, or keep it up and get punished, perhaps more harshly if there's a next time.
Does it suck to our Western sensibilities? Yes. But again, this isn't the West and Jordan is NOT a democratic country.
