BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - 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. Larry Bird, who had a Hall of Fame playing career with the Boston Celtics and later coached and worked in the Indiana Pacers' front office, is an Indiana native.
