Larry Bird's 21-year-old son arrested
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Basketball great Larry Bird's son has been arrested after police say he tried to run over his ex-girlfriend with a car.
Twenty-one-year-old Conner Anthony Bird faces preliminary charges including intimidation with a deadly weapon, as well as battery with injury and possession of marijuana.
Indiana University police arrested Bird on Sunday morning. They say his ex-girlfriend told an officer that Bird threw a cellphone at her and drove his car at her during an argument. A police report says IU police arrested Bird after tracking down his vehicle.
Bird is a student at IU's Bloomington campus. A Monroe County jail officer said Tuesday that Bird was no longer in custody.
Bird's attorney didn't return a phone call seeking comment.
