Connor Bird, the son of Larry Bird, was arrested Sunday after he tried to hit his ex-girlfriend with his car. The incident took place in Bloomington, on campus of Indiana University. Bird and his ex got into an argument at his apartment earlier in the day and he threw his cell phone at her. From the Journal and Courier:
Later, police said, Bird waited at his ex-girlfriend’s home and took her to a parking lot to talk things over. There, however, they got into another fight, police said, and the girl got out of Bird’s car with the intent of walking back to her home. That’s when, police said, Bird twice tried to hit the woman with his car.
Connor Bird is now facing charges of battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.
