As of Saturday morning, Bird was "being guarded" in a hospital, according to the Boston Police Department. It added the victim involved in the incident was transported to a separate hospital for treatment of injuries, and that complaints will be sought against Bird for assault and battery, strangulation, and kidnapping.
"We are aware of the incident involving Jabari Bird and are taking it very seriously," the Celtics said in a statement, via ESPN's Chris Forsberg. "We are actively gathering information and will reserve further comment at this time."
Bird, a second-round pick in 2017, split last season between the Celtics and their G League affiliate in Maine. In 13 NBA contests, he averaged three points.
