It was reported Bird was in custody at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and the Boston Police Department’s domestic violence unit is involved.

The Celtics released a statement on the incident Saturday morning:

"We are aware of the incident involving Jabari Bird and are taking it very seriously. We are actively gathering information and will reserve further comment at this time."
