Larry Bird’s son arrested for allegedly trying to run over his ex-girlfriend
Larry Bird’s 21-year-old son Conner was arrested by Indiana University campus police Sunday for allegedly being a naughty boy.
Bird and his ex-girlfriend reportedly argued at his apartment Saturday, and he allegedly threw a cell phone at her which hit her in the wrist.
According to Inc Now, the ex-girlfriend walked to her home and says Bird was waiting there in his car when she arrived. She says she got into his car and they drove to a parking lot at Memorial Stadium where they continued to argue. The woman reportedly says she got out to walk home, and she alleges Bird chased her in his car and tried running her over. She was able to contact a campus police officer to complain. Bird was later arrested by campus police.
Bird was taken to Monroe County Jail after his arrest, according to ABC 6 in Indianapolis. He is facing charges of intimidation with a deadly weapon, battery resulting in bodily harm, criminal recklessness and possession of marijuana. The AP says he was no longer in custody as of Tuesday.
