According to the Indianapolis Star, Connor Bird, 21, allegedly tried to hit his ex-girlfriend with a car. He faces multiple charges, including battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.

The Indiana University Police Department said Connor Bird got into an argument with his ex-girlfriend, threw a cell phone at her and then attempted twice to run her over in his car in a Bloomington, Ind. parking lot. According to police, another Indiana student witnessed the incident and took the female to the campus police department.

3. Possession Of Marijuana

Will probably land him in jail. The other stuff, a fine and community service.

Sarcasm alert.

A good attorney will keep a felony charge off of his record. Completion of an anger management class will probably keep him out of jail. The stiff fine and community service probably holds.
