NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 28-year-old son, Adam Abdul-Jabbar, was arrested earlier this week in California.  He allegedly stabbed his neighbor multiple times on Wednesday night.

According to TMZ Sports, Adam was booked on one count of assault with a deadly weapon.  He has been released from custody.

The alleged victim, who suffered non life threatening injuries, drove himself to the hospital.

Cops tell us ... officers responded to call about a stabbing on June 9 around 10 PM in San Clemente, CA.

"The suspect, who is the neighbor of the victim, was arrested without incident," a police spokesperson tells us.

Cops say the victim transported himself to the hospital "with multiple non-life-threatening injuries."

According to his booking sheet, Abdul-Jabbar stands 6'7" and weighs 180 lbs. He has since been released from custody, cops say.

Holy shit, what a crazy story.  How does the kid of a living legend find himself in handcuffs for allegedly stabbing someone?

Something tells me the story behind this is going to end up being very entertaining.  I can't wait for the details.
