Connor Bird, son of basketball star Larry Bird, has been arrested.
The 21-year-old Bird was involved in an argument with an ex-girlfriend in his Bloomington, Ind., apartment on the afternoon of Feb. 10. He reportedly threw a cell phone at her.
Hours later, the two drove to a nearby parking lot where the woman got out of the car, intending to walk home. Bird allegedly then attempted to hit her twice with his vehicle.
He was later arrested by the Indiana University Police on charges of battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon, and possession of marijuana. He is now free on bail and no trial date has been set.
This isn’t the first time Bird has been arrested though, having previously been in 2011 for underage drinking and disorderly conduct.
