Adam Abdul-Jabbar, the son of famed Los Angeles Laker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, was arrested on suspicion of stabbing his neighbor in San Clemente earlier this week, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

OCSD spokesperson Carrie Braun said that Adam Abdul-Jabbar was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after being accused of stabbing his neighbor multiple times. Adam Abdul-Jabbar was taken into custody without any incident, she said.  

The victim, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, transported himself to a hospital, Braun said.

The call for the stabbing on the 300 block of Calle Guaymus went out to OCSD on Tuesday night, June 9, with deputies responding at around 10 p.m., according to Braun.

Adam Abdul-Jabbar was released on bond on Wednesday, June 10. The investigation is ongoing, Braun said.

OCSD said it would not be releasing Adam Abdul-Jabbar’s booking photo on Friday, June. 12.

  • My wrote this and I want to share it because we sometime need inspirations,

    As I see it…

    “When we rise to love on the agape level, we love men not because we like them, not because their attitudes and ways appeal to us, but we love them because God loves them.”- MLK Jr.

    If everyone was as happy as they claim on this site, none of these problems would exist. Our problem is we’ve lost interest in each other, and we’ve too often not listened to each other. All-the-while, we mask the pain & rage brewing inside. We all want to be heard. But we need some perspective.

    From our very 1st breathe we get to experience the most fascinating miracle of all.


    We are the most capable organism created on this planet. We need to become fascinated with it in each of us. We are not mice. We are not animals. We are not birds, lions, sharks or beasts. They are purely primal creatures, and are stuck in the limitations of such an existence. We are so much more than that. We are the beings who build infrastructures for waste so it won’t decorate our homes. We are the beings who create planes to fly to our desired destinations. We are the ones who create restaurants, markets, stores & foodbanks so we can choose not to be carnivorous predators. We are able to create out of thin air.

    After all of this, it will be 1 of the most exciting times in human history.

    If we choose it.

    You can learn something from each and every one of us. A Closed Mind is No Mind. Change shouldn’t be feared. Fear should be feared. Release it.

    We’re more powerful than its confines.
