Milton Bradley arrested; again

Milton Bradley arrested? Yep. And not only is it the second time this year, it involved baseball, well sort of. The former Los Angeles Dodgers player allegedly swung a bat at his wife but of course missed.

According to police, the incident is said to have occurred in Bradley’s San Fernando Valley home in Los Angeles. Bradley, thirty-three years old and obviously missing baseball, was arrested and charged with suspicion of felony assault.

Police said what began as an argument escalated when Milton grabbed a bat and began swinging it at his wife, chasing her out of the couple’s home. After Bradley left the home, police were able to track him down and that lead to him going “Directly to Jail” while not passing “Go” and not collecting $200 but rather paying a $30,000 bail.

This is Bradley’s second incident related to domestic violence this year although that first incident did not result in any charges.

Bradley, who played for eight teams over 12 seasons was always getting moved, many times due to his reputation of controversial on and off the field issues.

A few of those issues occurred in L.A. when he was playing for the Dodgers and threw a water bottle toward fans and followed that gaffe up with a confrontation with an L.A. Times sportswriter.

Milton Bradley arrested for threatening woman

Milton Bradley, who currently plays outfield for the Seattle Mariners, was arrested around 10.a.m. Tuesday morning in Los Angeles for allegedly making criminal threats towards a woman. He was booked and taken to the Van Nuys jail and released after posting a $50,000 bail.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department would not release information surrounding the details of the alleged threats and has kept the woman’s identity under wraps, but did mention the a court date has been scheduled for Feb. 8th.

Until that time comes, we’ll just have to take guesses as to what Bradley threatened the woman with. Our initial thought was that he probably threatened her with season tickets to his games, but that is more like torture than a threat, so we doubt he did that. Although the bond was set pretty high, so it is possible, but still unlikely.

If we had to take a second guess, then we would have to go with some sort of violent related threat, and this is just solely because we’ve seen his little ‘outbursts’ time and time again. Milton Bradley’s behavior on the field has become some sort of a stage act nowadays. The self-proclaimed ‘bad guy’ kicks dirt, throws tantrums, dumps bags of baseballs, calls a reporter “Uncle Tom”, demands a trade, and then calls it a day. Oh yeah, we can also throw in a strikeout and an error in there as well.

This wasn’t always the case, though. Bradley was once a highly-touted outfielder, but has recently seen his stardom fade due to personal problems, anger issues, and several unforgettable, uh, disagreements with managers and umpires. He’s been suspended, booed, traded, mocked, and now he’s been cuffed.

We don’t need to know the details of the threats in order to realize that this guy has some problems. He’s admitted that he has personal issues and has entered counseling to deal with it, but we think it’s time for him to leave baseball and focus on himself for a while.

The Mariners have stated that they are aware of the arrest and taking it very seriously, but this could be the last straw for Bradley. There are plenty of guys out there that are breaking their back to get into the league, so why not give them a shot?
