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.
