Details: Bird was arrested and accused of assaulting his girlfriend following an argument. She accused Bird of strangling her and throwing her against a wall. She said Bird would strangle her until she went “limp,” allow her to catch her breath and begin choking her again. She also said that Bird kicked her multiple times in the stomach and dragged her away from the door when she tried to leave before shutting her into a bathroom. She was able to escape only after Bird passed out with “seizure-like” symptoms.
