Milton Bradley says his wife’s charges are bogus

We report when Milton Bradley gets arrested and gets restraining orders filed against him and stuff, so it only seems fair to give the man time for his own side.  Not saying I believe him or that he’s a good guy, but the fact is that stuff starts flying in domestic situations and, while you always have to err on offering protection to someone who claims abuse or violence has occurred, there is a process by which the accused can counter the claims. And claims can be false.

Anyway, Bradley is countering the claims by responding to his wife’s request for a restraining order, saying that she is lying, that she has a history of leveling false claims and that this is no different.  You can read the summary of it all in this Seattle PI story.

And for the record, no, none of that makes this whole scene any less ugly.

    I don’t know about her track record, but his is not good.

      This ^^ If he’s going to talk about her history, how exactly does he expect the past to favor him in this dispute?

    Let’s say many men have crossed paths with a woman who is willing to do anything to “pay back” a man for her hurt in whatever way she deems most appropriate and damaging. Some women are known to lie to police. A part of our culture wants to deny that or keep it a secret but it’s very real.

    Now, to be fair, Milton Bradley’s claims about this are going to be very hard to believe due to his very public nuclear meltdowns. The guy has an undeniable rage problem so to say he couldn’t be abusive in a relationship is ridiculous.

    Thanks for shoveling us some dirt this morning, Craig. On mornings when I can’t make it to Publix to check out the slime coatings on the tabloid rack by the checkout counter, it’s good to know I can get my mindless gossip virally from Circling the Bases. So, what do you hear about Kim Kardashian?

    Considering his history of being a level-headed good citizen and clubhouse leader, there is of course no reason to believe Bradley is in fact a lying sack with serious anger problems. Assuming that Milton is a complete tool and a scourge to society is completely without basis and……

    Damn, I almost got through that with a straight face.

    Milton is a douche.

    She said he hit her, right?

    Bradley never hit anything, so I have to say, I’m a bit suspect…

    I can’t understand why people pick on Milton,he’s such a mild mannered gent. In reality, I still say he’ll make prison in not the too distant future. Good luck Milton, you’re gaining on your eventual home.
