(Orange County, CA) -- The son of basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is facing felony assault charges in the stabbing of a neighbor in California. Adam Abdul-Jabbar allegedly used a large hunting knife and fractured the skull of a 60-year-old man in June. Authorities said an argument began after the victim confronted the 28-year-old for not bringing in trash cans for a roommate. Abdul-Jabbar's attorney claimed the "complaining witness" initiated the altercation and his client was the one who called police. The suspect was released days later and is scheduled to be arraigned next month.
