Larry Bird's son Conner has been arrested by Indiana University campus police after allegedly trying to run down his girlfriend in a parking lot. According to authorities, the alleged victim told cops Bird threw a cell phone at her during an argument at his apartment, injuring her wrist, reports TMZ.com.
But the alleged violence didn't end there, as later that night, the woman says she got into Bird's car to head to the Indiana stadium when they started arguing again, after which she got out of the car and proceeded to walk home. According to the woman, Conner began to chase her through the parking lot, trying to run her over!
His girlfriend flagged down a stranger who happened to be in the parking lot and the pair waited for a cop to arrive. Campus police tracked down Bird pretty quickly and arrested him for intimidation with a deadly weapon, criminal mischief, battery injury, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. It's not Larry's son's first brush with the law - he was reportedly arrested in 2011 for underage drinking and disorderly conduct.
Larry Bird is a former NBA legend, playing for the Boston Celtics for the most part of his career. He is the only person in the history of the game to be named Most Valuable Player, Coach of the Year and Executive of the Year.
