Milton Bradley may not be out of hot water yet

Milton Bradley’s attorney released a statement yesterday saying that his client has been cleared of all charges in regards to a felony arrest for making threats against his wife last month. According to the Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office has a different take on the situation.

“That’s a very optimistic way of interpreting it,” said Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the office.

Mateljan continued by saying that Bradley hasn’t been cleared of anything and criminal charges can be filed for up to a year after a complaint is first lodged with police. In other words, he isn’t getting a clean slate here. If another incident happens with his wife sometime in the near future, he could face the charges from his arrest last month.

We all have our opinions about Bradley as a ballplayer and a person, but let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

    Yes, let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

    But something makes you think it probably will.

    I’ll be the Milton Bradley board game company wishes this guy would just go away. Then again they’re also the company that makes the Oujia Board. Maybe this is a multi-year guerilla marketing campaign to reach out to satanists.

    He’s just a guy who needs help, and can’t get out of his own way.

    On a different note: D.J., “in regards to” is grammatically incorrect. Regards, and regard, are two different words. This is not mean, or malicious, I just hate the misuse of that phrase.

      Irregardless…. regard and regards are tantamount to the same thing.
