Boston Celtics guard Jabari Bird was arrested over the weekend and arraigned Thursday on a series of disturbing charges, and the team has finally made a decision to address the situation.
The Celtics guard is being accused of assaulting his girlfriend for four hours in his apartment and strangling her multiple times, including once until she lost consciousness, according to Tom Westerholm of MassLive.
Bird pleaded not guilty to felony kidnapping, felony assault and battery with a risky weapon, strangulation and assault and battery of a household member. She then told a member of the Celtics organization, who passed it onto the police and checked in on Bird while the victim was receiving treatment at the hospital.
Bird has been at a local Massachusets hospital, where he is under guarded watch, since the alleged assault last Friday.
The Celtics released an official statement regarding the allegations, saying that their "thoughts were with the victim" and that they were "deeply disturbed by the allegations".

What is Bird's employment status with the Celtics?
Bird, a second-round draft choice of the Celtics in 2017 out of California, signed a two-year contract with the team this summer after splitting his rookie season between Boston and the Maine Red Claws of the G-League. Only the first year is guaranteed. His next court date is set for October 25. He played in Boston on a two-way contract last season and was expected to be one of the last players on the bench of a championship contender. In the meantime, he can travel out of state only with the Celtics, should the organisation keep him on the roster entering this month's training camp. Bird's case could be an important and complicated one for a league that has sought to both take a firmer stance against domestic violence, and create a more open environment for players working through mental health issues.
