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. Bird is the son of NBA great Larry Bird, an Indiana native.
