On his booking slip, Adam Abdul-Jabbar is listed as a 6-foot-7, 180-pound Gamestop employee. 

Police told TMZ that the officers responded to a call in San Clement on June 9 around 10pm local time.

‘The suspect, who is the neighbor of the victim, was arrested without incident,’ a police spokesperson told TMZ.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 73, has not issued a statement on the arrest. 

It is not clear who Adam Abdul-Jabbar’s mother is. Kareem has three children with his first wife, Janice, whom Abdul-Jabbar divorced in 1978, and another son with a woman named Cheryl Pistono. A 2015 Washington Post article simply states that the former UCLA star has a fifth child, presumably Adam, ‘with another woman.’

A six-time NBA champion and the league’s all-time leading scorer, the 7-foot-2 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made news recently by speaking out against racism and police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s killing at the hands of Minneapolis police on May 25.

The former Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks star also contributed to ESPN’s recent documentary on Bruce Lee, who was Abdul-Jabbar’s martial arts instructor in the early 1970s.
