Prosecutors on Thursday accused the Boston Celtics guard of assaulting his girlfriend at his apartment last Friday night for four hours, strangling her multiple times and at one point making her lose consciousness, according to MassLive's Tom Westerholm. A month after the former second-round pick signed his first full-time National Basketball Association contract with the Celtics, the 24-year-old was arrested Saturday in Boston's Brighton neighbourhood on charges of domestic assault, strangulation and kidnapping. "Bird allegedly dragged the victim by the ankles away from a door when she tried to leave". Bird's arraingment originally was scheduled for Monday, but was postponed because he was still in the hospital. "The Celtics organization deplores domestic violence of any kind, and we are deeply disturbed by the allegations against Jabari Bird", the Celtics said in a statement issued by the team early Thursday afternoon.
The Celtics said in their statement that, per the NBA's policy on domestic violence, "matters of this kind" are handled by the league.
The Celtics have acknowledged they know of Bird's arrest, but have declined further comment since the weekend. The judge set Bird's bail at $100,000. The victim then placed Bird on the bed and return to her dormitory.

What is Bird's employment status with the Celtics?
Boston selected Bird with the 58th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Only the first year is guaranteed.
Bird is scheduled to return to court on October 25. Last season he signed a one-year, two-way contract and spent most of the season with the team's G-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
The NBA has been known to take stern action when it comes to domestic abuse, but the Celtics got in front of this matter by promptly releasing a statement after he was arraigned. However, it is also possible the Celtics could decide to cut ties with the guard and open up a roster spot heading into training camp on September 28. Police have not released details, including who the victim was or where the attack happened, citing a state law that bans police from discussing domestic violence investigations. The team said it "will be working with both the league and local authorities to assist in their ongoing investigations".
