Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's son, Adam, has been charged with several felonies stemming from the stabbing of his neighbor.  The June incident took place after an argument over trash cans.

The 28-year-old could face up to almost 10 years in prison if he's convicted of all of the charges.

From FOX News:

Adam Abdul-Jabbar, 28, of San Clemente was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of carrying a dirk or dagger. The felony charges include enhancements alleging the attack caused great bodily injury.

He could face up to nine years and eight months in prison if convicted.

Abdul-Jabbar and his neighbor share a driveway. Abdul-Jabbar stabbed the neighbor several times on June 9 after the man confronted him about failing to take in trash cans for Abdul-Jabbar's elderly roommate, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

One wound to the back of his head caused a brain bleed, prosecutors said.

Well at least the argument started over something important.  I mean, we can't have people leaving their trash cans all over the place.

It's also true that we can't have people stabbing their neighbors either.  I guess we'll have to have the government sort this one out.
