Connor Bird: Larry Bird's son arrested after trying to hit his ex-girlfriend with a car - twice
Somebody needs to teach Connor Bird about chivalry, because her certainly does not know how to treat a lady. Larry Bird's son was arrested at Indiana University after allegedly trying to run his ex-girlfriend over with a car.
The Indianapolis Star has the news, and says that the list of charges against Bird, 21, include "battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana." There's a lesson for you, kids: Don't smoke and fight with your ex's.
The trouble reportedly began after Bird and his ex got in a fight at his apartment. He threw a cell phone at her, and she seemingly left. Bird later went to her home to try to talk things over in a parking lot, but they fought again and she got out of his car. It was at this point that police say he tried to run her over twice. Another IU student reportedly saw the entire incident.
"This is a very private matter that we're going to try to resolve quickly," Bird's attorney John L. Tompkins says. "We're thankful that no one was seriously injured."
