Horrific details emerge in Jabari Bird assault case

Celtics guard Jabari Bird to be arraigned on domestic violence charge

Bird, 24, was held on $50,000 bail after not-guilty pleas to domestic violence-related charges were entered on his behalf.

Bird pleaded not guilty to felony kidnapping, felony assault and battery with a unsafe weapon, strangulation and assault and battery of a household member.

The Celtics released a statement on the situation this morning. I do not condone violence against women.

Prosecutors say Bird choked the woman unconscious, threw her against the wall, and dragged her by the ankles when she tried to leave his apartment in the city's Brighton neighborhood last Friday. "I am hopeful that in due time and process, I will be able to regain everyone's trust". She said Bird would strangle her until she went "limp", allow her to catch her breath and begin choking her again.

In New Bern, hundreds of people were rescued from their flood-swamped homes. "They definitely need to be prepared." he said. But with half of the storm still out over the Atlantic, Florence continued to collect warm ocean water and dump it onshore.


Bird is being represented by Brian T. Kelly, a former federal prosecutor who spent years purusing and then successfully prosecuting James "Whitey" Bulger; and Robert Fisher, who prosecuted Massachusetts Probation Department officials in a case that was overturned on appeal, the Globe has learned.

The Celtics released the following statement after Bird's arraignment Thursday: "Most importantly, our thoughts are with the victim of this incident".

The team notes that domestic violence issues are handled by the NBA's main office.

"Prosecutors allege that Bird strangled his girlfriend, a college student, a dozen times to the point that she lost consciousness for a period of time".

The police report states the woman eventually took refuge in a bathroom, and when she came out, Bird was displaying "seizure-like symptoms".

He reportedly texted her that if she did not return to the apartment, he would kill himself.

It is unclear whether or not Bird will remain in custody at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, where he has been since apprehended, make bail, or be moved to a detention facility. The team will have no further comment at this time.

Boston selected Bird with the 58th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. 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.
