Milton Bradley arrested in the Valley

Milton BradleyTroubled ex-Dodger Milton Bradley looks to be in trouble again. He was booked into the Van Nuys jail today on suspicion of making criminal threats, reportedly involving a woman in Encino. Bradley was released on $50,000 bail. His current team, the Seattle Mariners, said in a statement that "while we do not yet have full details on what occurred, we are aware of the situation and take it very seriously." Since the Dodgers gave up on him in the 2005 trade for Andre Ethier, Bradley has played for Oakland, Texas, the Padres, the Chicago Cubs and Seattle — and was such a disappointment there last season that he was slotted in as a bench player, if that, this coming season. Bradley also took some time off last season to deal with personal demons, issues that plagued him in his short time with the Dodgers.
