Embattled journeyman outfielder Milton Bradley has made the news for all the wrong reasons again. This time around, he is alleged to have told his wife he is going to kill her. During a heated argument on Sept. 27, which led to Bradley’s arrest, he allegedly showed Monique Bradley a picture of a gun and said, “this is the gun I’m going to kill you with,” according to TMZ.com.
Monique also alleged during the altercation that Milton threatened her with a baseball bat while cussing her out and hurling insults.
This isn’t new, unfortunately. Earlier this year, Monique also alleged that Milton had threatened to kill her and filed for a restraining order. That incident led to a temporary restraining order, but the Sept. 27 argument has caused her to seek permanent protection from him.
There are two sides to every story, but it’s at least evident the two don’t need to be in a relationship that is so toxic.
Milton Bradley, 33, long had the talent to continue getting jobs with baseball teams, but his attitude led to him constantly needing to be shipped away to a new ballclub. He played for eight different teams in 12 seasons before being released by the Mariners early this season and it’s unlikely he ever gets a job in baseball again.
