Milton Bradley was best known for his violent temper as a player, but that spilled over into his personal life. Unlike MLB where they can only suspend or fine you for behaving inappropriately, in real life you go to jail for those actions.
The 35-year-old former All-Star was convicted of nine misdemeanor counts, including four counts of spousal battery, one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of making criminal threats. Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney, said Bradley faces seven-and-a-half years in jail at his sentencing, which is scheduled for July 2.
In one incident, Bradley pushed his wife against a wall and choked her after she asked him to stop smoking marijuana in front of their children. She also demanded his friends leave there home.
If you put your hands on a woman and your life isn’t in danger, you should be thrown under the jail. That apparently is where Bradley will be for the foreseeable future.
