Basketball Hall of Famer Larry Bird’s college-age son could be in a world of trouble if a nasty batch of allegations about the 21-year-old are true. According to police in Bloomington, Ind., Connor Bird allegedly attempted to run his ex-girlfriend over with a car on Sunday after she got out off his vehicle following several arguments.
For Bird, the list of allegations goes on — the Indianapolis Star is reporting that Bird’s list of charges will include “battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.” So, allegedly, drugs on him while attempting to run someone over with a car. Sound work. Allegedly.
From Bill McCleery at the Star:
Trouble began, police said, after Bird and the ex-girlfriend got into a dispute Sunday at Bird’s Bloomington apartment. Bird threw a cell phone at the female, police said.
Later, police said, Bird waited at his ex-girlfriend’s home and took her to a parking lot to talk things over. There, however, they got into another fight, police said, and the girl got out of Bird’s car with the intent of walking back to her home. That’s when, police said, Bird twice tried to hit the woman with his car. Another IU student witnessed the incident, police said, and took the female to the Indiana University Police Department.
According to TMZ, Connor Bird was also arrested in 2011 for “underaged drinking and disorderly conduct.”
This story is hilarious. Of all the places on campus, the Assembly Hall parking lot is probably the most out in the open with enough people around where someone is going to see it. He looks like a complete scrub in that mugshot.
The best part of the story is that he wasn't charged with a DUI or anything, which means he did all this sober.
Like most kids, with a dad such as Larry Bird he'll probably just get off with a slap on the wrists.
