Connor Bird, 21, was arrested Sunday at Indiana University for allegedly trying to run over his ex-girlfriend with his car after an argument. Connor Bird is the son of the well known basketball star Larry Bird.
According to the Indiana Police Department, Connor Bird faces multiple preliminary charges, including battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.
Police said it all began when Bird and his ex-girlfriend got into an argument Sunday at Bird's apartment. He then allegedly threw a cell phone at her.
Bird then tried to talk things over with the ex-girlfriend, but another fight escalated and the woman got out of the car insisting that she walk back home. That is when, according to police, Bird tried to hit her twice with his car. A student witnessed it and took the ex-girlfriend to the police department.
No one was seriously injured in the incident, and no formal charges have been made against Bird. He has been bonded out of jail.
