Celtics' Jabari Bird Accused Of Violently Attacking His Girlfriend For Hours

Celtics' Jabari Bird Accused Of Violently Attacking His Girlfriend For Hours

Prosecutors on Thursday accused the Boston Celtics guard of assaulting his girlfriend at his apartment last Friday night for four hours, strangling her multiple times and at one point making her lose consciousness, according to MassLive's Tom Westerholm.

"Unless you're a drug dealer, you don't have $100,000 lying around!"

Bird spent several days in a hospital.

Bird's accuser is a 20-year-old student at a prominent university in Boston.

Bird was ordered held on $50,000 bail Thursday.

The Celtics called the allegations disturbing and said the team's "thoughts are with the victim".

"I do not condone violence against women", he said.

Meanwhile, in SC , at least one gator seemed to be cool with the outer bands of wind and rain that whipped the Myrtle Beach area. As her son fed the goats in a hotel parking lot, she said she might not be able to return home until the middle of next week.


Police said the incident occurred at Bird's girlfriend's apartment.

'The Celtics organization deplores domestic violence of any kind, and we are deeply disturbed by the allegations against Jabari Bird, ' the team said in a statement. Eventually, she told police, she was able to leave the residence after Bird had "seizure-like" symptoms and passed out.

The Celtics addressed Thursday's hearing in a statement, saying the matter will be handled by the National Basketball Association rather than the team. Pursuant to Domestic Violence Policy in the NBA's labor agreement, matters of this kind are handled by the League Office, not the team, and so the Celtics will be working with both the league and local authorities to assist in their ongoing investigations. His girlfriend reportedly told police that, after she left his apartment, he texted her, saying he would kill himself if she did not return.

The Celtics have acknowledged they know of Bird's arrest, but have declined further comment since the weekend.

4 p.m.: This report has been updated with news of Jabari Bird taking time off from the Celtics and a Milwaukee police officer being fired in aftermath of the stun gun arrest of Bucks' player Sterling Brown.

Bird had been held at a local hospital for evaluation, which delayed the arraignment hearing to Thursday.

The Celtics selected Bird with the No. 56 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. He appeared in just 13 games last season. A Summer League standout this past July, Bird recently signed a two-year contract, which featured a fully guaranteed contract for the 2018-19 season, with the Celtics to round out their National Basketball Association roster.
