Larry Bird's son was arrested Sunday and faces multiples charges after allegedly trying to hit his ex-girlfriend with a car in a parking lot, according to a report Tuesday from Bill McLeery of The Indianapolis Star.

Connor Bird, 21, faces a number of preliminary charges, including battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana. According to police, Bird threw a cell phone at his ex-girlfriend while in the middle of a dispute at his apartment. He then waited outside of her apartment later that day and took her to a parking lot to "try to talk things over," according to the report, but she got out of the car to go back home and then he tried to hit her with the vehicle while he was behind the wheel, according to an eye-witness account from a student at Indiana University. According to a report from The Associated Press, IU police arrested Bird after tracking down his vehicle.

Bird bonded out of Monroe County Jail and his attorney said that it is their hope that things will be fixed in a timely manner, adding that they are thankful no one was seriously injured in the incident.

“This is a very private matter that we’re going to try to resolve quickly. We’re thankful that no one was seriously injured.”
