No formal charges have been filed as of yet, according to the report. An attorney for Bird declined comment to the Star other than to say: "This is a very private matter that we're going to try to resolve quickly. We're thankful that no one was seriously injured."

Larry Bird, 56, retired from baskeball life last summer after serving several years as president of the Pacers. He has reportedly retired to Florida in recent months. The Hall of Fame forward was a 12-time All-Star and three-time NBA champion.
