Larry Bird's Son Arrested After Allegedly Trying to Run Down Girlfriend with Car

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, battery with injury and possession of marijuana.

"It is a private matter we are hoping to resolve as quickly as possible," said Connor Bird's attorney, John Tompkins, in a statement. "We are happy no one was seriously hurt."

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.
