NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’ son Adam was charged earlier in the week in the stabbing of a neighbor in a dispute over a trash can earlier this year, authorities said.
Adam Abdul-Jabbar is accused of stabbing his 60-year-old neighbor with a large hunting knife and fracturing the man’s skull in the incident June 9th, the Orange County, California, district attorney’s office said in a statement.
“The 60-year-old victim suffered a fractured skull and nearly died from blood loss after collapsing outside of the emergency room,” the statement said via Fox News.
“A dispute between neighbors should never escalate to violence, much less the ruthless nature of this attack,” District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in the statement. “Violence of any kind will not be tolerated in Orange County and those who choose to inflict violence on others will be prosecuted.”
Abdul-Jabbar was charged with three felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes. He faces a maximum sentence of nearly 10 years in prison, the statement said.
Fighting over garbage cans is never worth your freedom.
