Karim Abdul-Jabbar's Son Arrested For Stabbing A Neighbour


Karim Abdul-Jabbar's son arrested in California for stabbing a neighbour:


California - Adam Abdul-Jabbar, the son of femur Karim Abdul-Jabbar at a basketball hall, was arrested earlier this week in California on charges of stabbing his neighbour, authorities confirmed Friday.


A spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Office said the 26-year-old was charged Wednesday with suspected assault with a deadly weapon. He was released on 25,000 bonds the same day.


Deputies responded to a stabbing call in San Clement on Tuesday night, according to authorities. The suspect has been taken into custody without any suspicion, officials said. He was later identified as Abdul-Jabbar.

A spokesman for the sheriff said the victim, Ray Winsor, had taken himself to hospital with multiple injuries that were not fatal.

Winsor told our sister station KABC that she was lucky to survive after being stabbed seven times, and that the knife even pierced her head.

Residents of the area described Abdul-Jabbar as a "good kid" and were shocked by the alleged violence.

Winsor said the conflict over trash cans began, an ongoing issue between the two over the past two years.

“I got him somehow because the woman he cares for is 833 years old, he doesn’t do anything for her and it pushes me, he took his garbage can down a walker,” Winsor said.

Winsor said Abdul-Jabbar went to his house, but then returned. According to Winsor, the 26-year-old said he was running a knife through his neighbour's teeth.

It was a statement that made Winsor feel like a joke because he said, "We had a relationship for many years." After Winsor started to walk away, he said he thought he was getting punched.

“I thought he punched me a few times, but then I saw blood,” Winsor said. "I said, 'Dude, you stabbed me.'

Winsor said Abdul-Jabbar was standing in front of him as he tried to bring it back to his house. That's when he punched Abdul-Jabbar.

A punch and it threw his glasses. I think it was a knife out of his hand. I'm not sure because it got dark, Winsor said.

KABC spoke briefly with Adam Abdul-Jabbar outside his home, but he declined to comment. "Probably later," Abdul-Jabbar said. Winsor said Abdul-Jabbar apologized to his wife the next day for the stabbing.


A spokesman for the suspects' father, Karim Abdul-Jabbar, said he was not immediately available for comment.
