Larry Bird’s Son Arrested for Allegedly Trying to Hit Girlfriend with Car

Larry Bird's son Conner was arrested for allegedly trying to run his girlfriend over with his car

Conner Bird, son of basketball legend Larry Bird, was arrested on Sunday at Indiana University.

The 21-year-old Bird had allegedly tried to hit his ex-girlfriend with his car, and he now faces multiple charges, including intimidation with a deadly weapon, battery with injury, criminal mischief, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

According to TMZ, police said that the incident stemmed from Bird throwing a cell phone at his ex-girlfriend in his apartment. The phone struck her in the wrist, and she presumably left afterward. Later, Bird waited outside her apartment and took her to a nearby parking lot in an attempt to talk things over. This led to yet another fight, and when she left his car to try to return home he allegedly chased her around the parking lot and tried to run her over. Police said that another IU student witnessed the whole thing, and promptly took Bird’s ex to the IU Police Department.

“It is a private matter we are hoping to resolve as quickly as possible,” Bird’s attorney, John Tompkins, told the Indy Channel. He continued, “We are happy no one was seriously hurt.”

This isn’t Bird’s first time in trouble, which may or may not surprise you — he was also reportedly arrested in 2011 for underage drinking and disorderly conduct. Conner is just one of the NBA legend’s three kids, but we can probably guess who the black sheep is.
