Following up on a story from January, the Associated Press reports that that former major league outfielder Milton Bradley was convicted today of abusing and threatening his estranged wife.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney’s office says Bradley was convicted Monday of nine misdemeanor counts, including assault with a deadly weapon and spousal battery. He faces up to 7 1/2 years in jail at his sentencing scheduled for July 2.

Prosecutors say Bradley threatened and attacked his wife five times in 2011 and 2012.

Authorities say Bradley pushed his wife against a wall and choked her after she asked him to stop smoking marijuana in front of their two children and wanted his friends to leave their home.

You can read more details in this story from Andrew Blankstein and Robert J. Lopez at the Los Angeles Times. Bradley wore out his welcome in baseball a couple of years ago, mostly due to his anger issues, but this is terrifying and depressing all at the same time.

    Hopefully he can get some help for his anger issues and what not while he is in jail. What a troubled dude. Feel sorry for all the crap his wife went through but feel horrible for the children….

    Locking him up may save lives.

    Just had a second chance to think about it . Maybe prison won’t be such a bad thing . He can still get his life together . They have some good ministries that deal with anger issues .

    He needed treatment for those anger issues, and must have had the cash to go to Betty Ford or some other high end facility. Too late, now.
