      Larry Bird's son arrested

      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. 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. Bird's attorney didn't return a phone call seeking comment. Bird is the son of NBA great Larry Bird, an Indiana native.
