Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley was arrested for the second time in less than a year, this time for an alleged battery in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles police said Wednesday. To be specific the police report says he actually swung a baseball bat at his wife, and thankfully he missed.
The often in trouble former MLB star(on and off the field), was booked on suspicion of “felony assault” Tuesday afternoon at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Van Nuys Division jail. According to the LA Times:
Police responded to a domestic violence call at Bradley’s residence in the 5300 block of Oak Park Court. Investigating officers said the incident began as a verbal argument that escalated when Bradley took out a baseball bat and began swinging it at his wife, who ran out of the home.
Bradley got into his car and fled the residence before he was tracked down by officers from the LAPD’s West Valley Division on nearby Amestoy Avenue, where he was detained without incident.
