According to the Associated Press, Hill was charged with reckless driving and speeding and taken into custody on Tuesday. Police said he was driving 107 mph in a 65 mph zone and that Hill told them he was “in a hurry.”
“It is obvious we don't condone this,” said Bird. “We will address this with Jordan. This is a major concern of safety, not just for Jordan, but for others.”
Indiana signed Hill to a one-year, $4 million deal earlier this month.
Hill, 28, spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he averaged a career-high 12 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. A former first-round draft pick, Hill has also played for the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets.
