Adam Abdul-Jabbar, the son of former professional basketball player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, has been charged with multiple felonies.
The suspect faces 10 years in prison after he allegedly attacked a nieghbour with a knife two months ago.
The 28-year-old is alleged to have stabbed his neighbour when both were involved in a heated argument.
He was subsequently arrested by police in San Clemente, Calif and processed for court.
TMZ Sports reports that the victim alleged that Adam stabbed him after he (victim) complained to the basketball legend’s son about helping his grandma with outdoor trash cans.
The 60-year-old said Adam caused him a fractured skull, brain bleed and other serious injuries after stabbing him several times.
Reports suggest Adam has been charged with three felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one felony count of carrying a dirk or dagger, and three enhancements of inflicting great bodily injury, all of which could amount to almost 10 years in prison if he’s found guilty on all counts.
Speaking about the trial, Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said: “A dispute between neighbors should never escalate to violence, much less the ruthless nature of this attack.”
“Violence of any kind will not be tolerated in Orange County and those who choose to inflict violence on others will be prosecuted by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office to the fullest extent of the law.”
Meanwhile, Adam is set to appear before court again in September.
