Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Son Adam Arrested For Allegedly Stabbing Neighbor
The son of NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was arrested this week in San Clemente, California after allegedly stabbing his neighbor several times. This was confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff Department on Friday with HuffPost.
28-year-old Adam Abdul-Jabbar was booked for a deadly weapon attack.
He was "initially arrested and arrested without incident," the spokesman said. He was saved soon after, she added.
The victim took himself to the hospital after the encounter on June 9, "with several non-life-threatening injuries," police officers told the TMZ earlier.
"The investigation is ongoing and we will work with the prosecutor's office," the sheriff's spokesman told HuffPost.
To the knowledge of the speaker, the son did not mention his famous father during his arrest.
