WMUR - This Bird is definitely not the word. Connor Bird, the 21-year-old son of NBA Hall of Famer Larry Bird, was arrested on Sunday after a dispute with his former girlfriend ended with him allegedly attempting to hit her with his car on the Indiana University campus, according to multiple reports. He also allegedly had marijuana in his possession.IU police chief Keith Cash told the Indianapolis Star that police had a witness to the incident and that Bird faces charges of battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and marijuana possession. The Star reports that police said the trouble began at Bird’s Bloomington, Ind., apartment where the two argued. He allegedly threw a cell phone at her during the dispute. Bird then went to the alleged victim’s home and waited for her. The two ended up in his car in a parking lot on campus where, police said, another argument ensued. The woman got out of the car to walk home when Bird is accused of trying to hit her with his car twice.
Imagine the arrogance, the wonderful arrogance of a man who gets in an argument with his girlfriend and can either drive away or can run her over with his car. Has the time to do either one, and says, let’s roll the dice. Listen I absolutely hate when people use the “Do You Know Who I Am?” routine with cops. But if ever anybody could use it in the history of the world it’s got to be Larry Bird’s kid in Indiana. Like I feel as though he should be able to rape, pillage and plunder at will. I mean he is Larry Bird’s kid after all.
