The 21-year-old son of Larry Bird was busted on multiple charges after a fight with his girlfriend Sunday night, TMZ reports. To get things started, Conner Bird allegedly threw a cell phone at her while they were at his apartment. Later, en route to the Indiana University stadium, she says they started arguing again and she got out of the car—at which point Bird allegedly started chasing her in his car, trying to run her down. She managed to flag down another person and then a campus police officer, and Bird was arrested.

His charges include intimidation with a deadly weapon, criminal mischief, battery with injury, marijuana possession, and paraphernalia possession. In 2011, he was arrested for underage drinking and disorderly conduct. (Read more Larry Bird stories.)
