Adam Abdul-Jabbar, the son of  American former professional basketball player, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, has been charged on multiple felony counts after allegedly stabbing his neighbour in June, according to TMZ.

The 28-year-old Adam Abdul-Jabbar who is now facing nearly 10 years behind bars was arrested by policemen in San Clemente, California after  he attacked his neighbour during an argument.

Adam’s neighbour says he complained to the basketball legend’s son about helping his grandmother with outdoor trash cans … which the man says set Adam off.

The 60-year-old says Adam stabbed him numerous times … causing serious injuries, including a fractured skull and brain bleed. The man – who has since filed a civil lawsuit against Adam — also claims he nearly died from blood loss due to the incident.

According to TMZ Sports, “Adam has now been charged with 3 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 over his alleged role in the incident”.

If convicted on all counts, Adam faces up to nine years and eight months in prison.

“A dispute between neighbours should never escalate to violence, much less the ruthless nature of this attack,” Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said Tuesday.

“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.”

Adam is set to be arraigned in court next month.
