Former Los Angeles Dodgers and Seattle Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley has been charged with abusing his estranged wife and faces up to 13 years in jail if convicted, city prosecutors announced Friday. Bradley, 34, was charged on Thursday with 13 misdemeanor counts of assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism and dissuading a witness from making a report.
In addition to jail time, Bradley could face up to $13,000 in fines and restitution if convicted. He remained free pending a scheduled Jan. 24 arraignment. Prosecutors contend that Bradley threatened and attacked his wife five times in 2011 and 2012. He was twice arrested at the home in 2011. ''During one incident in November 2012, Bradley allegedly pushed his wife against a kitchen wall and choked her with both hands after she requested that he stop smoking marijuana in front of their children and requested that his friends leave her San Fernando Valley home,'' said a statement from the city attorney's office. Prosecutors contend that during other confrontations, Bradley kicked his wife in the ribs, approached her with a baseball bat and threatened her with a knife while telling her: ''You'll be dead b---- before you divorce me.'' ''My client denies it,'' said Bradley's attorney, Harland Braun. ''I've talked to him already. He said 'she's making up stories. I don't know what she's talking about.''' The couple, who have two children, are separated and in the middle of a contentious divorce. Bradley played 11 years in the majors with the Montreal Expos, Cleveland Indians, Dodgers, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners. His playing history was marred by several confrontational outbursts. The Dodgers traded him to Oakland in 2005 after he threw a water bottle at fans and he had a clubhouse run-in with a reporter. During his brief term with Seattle, he was suspended for a game for bumping an umpire and ejected for arguing a called third strike. He's been a free agent since the Mariners released him in 2011.
Sadly people like this never were shown their mothers love as infants and this type behavior is the result.
He will have plenty of time to figure that out in prison.
Of course the Nation of Islam will recruit him there and he can direct his passions towards the evil that caused all this. Whitey!
The only people I know who are not fully aware of Milton Bradley's short emotional fuse are folks who don't follow sports. Notice I said sports. Because even non baseball sports lovers know it, at least within my circle.
My guess is that Monique is fully aware how to light that fuse. And does it every chance she gets.
Note the work guess. Then realize that you are guessing too. And since he repeatedly goes off around her, I'd say it's likely they are both mental cases. So either she is just unbelievably ignorant or she tries to get him lathered up - most probably both.
I'll wait for both sides of the story to give true direction. I'm not sure why people like you want to trash people without even knowing what's true or false.
I'm sick of hearing about Bradley's problems.
He's a pathetic human being and bad for the game of baseball.
