Celtics Guard Jabari Bird Arrested For Domestic Violence Incident Friday Night

Celtics issue statement on reported Jabari Bird arrest

Celtics shooting guard Jabari Bird was arrested on assault and kidnapping charges following a domestic violence incident in Brighton Friday night, police say.

"Jabari Bird is now being guarded by the Boston Police at a local hospital for an evaluation after a domestic incident that occurred in Brighton on Friday, " the department said in a brief statement Saturday. The victim involved in the incident was brought to a different hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the incident, police said.

Bird, a second-round pick of the C's back in 2017, turned his one-year, two-way deal in 2017-18 into a two-year deal worth at least $3 million behind a strong performance in the Summer League this past July. Bird had signed a two-year, standard National Basketball Association contract in July - making him an official member of the Celtics' 15-man roster - after averaging 16.8 points on 57 percent shooting in summer league.
