Greg Bird charged http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,24234137-2,00.html NRL star Greg Bird was last night charged for allegedly glassing his American girlfriend in the face. Katie Milligan, 24, will undergo surgery at the Prince of Wales Hospital today for "glass wounds" to the eye and is also suffering a fractured eye socket. Police allege the incident took place at Bird's Cronulla unit about 7.30am (AEST) yesterday. The Cronulla Sharks and State of Origin player walked into Miranda police station just after 8.30pm last night to be interviewed by police. After more than two hours talking to detectives, the 24-year-old was charged and refused police bail. He will appear in Sutherland Local Court this morning to face a charge of maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm. Police also gave Bird a summons to attend court in respect of an alleged attack on a 20-year-old woman at a Cronulla nightclub on January 19. Ms Milligan was transferred from Sutherland Hospital to Prince of Wales Hospital yesterday after she was allegedly attacked with a sharp object, possibly a drinking glass, while at Bird's apartment in Boorima Place, Cronulla. Bird drove Ms Milligan to hospital about 8.30am. A trail of blood stretched from the front door of Bird's apartment, across a hallway, into an lift, across the building's foyer and out into the car park. Doctors feared the lacerations to Ms Milligan's eye were so bad she may lose it. A hospital spokeswoman said last night that a 24-year-old woman was in a stable condition. Due to her injuries police have yet to get a statement from Ms Milligan. She had only been in Australia for two months and had been dating Bird for that time, sources told The Daily Telegraph. The Cronulla Sharks club had hoped to interview Bird this morning and claimed Bird told them yesterday, before his arrest, he was not responsible. "I understand he wasn't involved," Cronulla Sharks CEO Tony Zappia said. "We have only made initial inquiries and Greg has been too concerned about the girl and said he will come and see me first thing in the morning to tell me more."
