Boston Celtics reserve guard Jabari Bird, who stepped away from the team in September following his arrest for allegedly choking his girlfriend more than a dozen times, faces new charges in the high-profile domestic violence case, according to court records.
He was arraigned Wednesday in Brighton Municipal Court on new counts of witness intimidation and threats to commit a crime stemming from the same incident. He pleaded not guilty and was released on the same $50,000 bail he had posted previously.
Bird was arraigned in September on charges of assault and battery on a household or family member, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping, and strangulation or suffocation. He pleaded not guilty.
