Milton BradleyMariners outfielder Milton Bradley has been accused of hitting his wife with the top of a glass coffee table, according to court documents obtained by

Milton's wife, Monique, is seeking a divorce. She requested a restraining order on January 24. The two already have a March 9 scheduled hearing in Los Angeles Attorney's office for making threats against his wife in January. It's unclear if this is related to that incident.

From the report:

"The glass shattered on my head and I started to bleed. As soon as Milton saw me bleeding, he started crying and begging me to forgive him. He stated that he lost it and that he would kill himself if I left him. I did not know what to do."

The incident happened at a hotel in New York when the couple was in town for New Year's Eve. She also says hotel security came to the door, but Milton Bradley said there was no problem. Monique didn't go to the hospital for the incident.

Bradley actually filed for divorce in January of 2006, but never finalized the divorce.

Bradley is off to a hot start for the Mariners this spring, going 5 for 8 with two doubles and three RBI.

Bradley's wife claims abuse

"The Bison" - I'm not defending domestic violence, but I think many people fail to see the big picture. Let me first start by saying Milton Bradley is not my hero.  I think I'm simply maintaining a broader perspective than many of the people who jump all over people, like Bradley, who are reported for domestic violence.  There are many cases where domestic violence is about control and power.  I don't think this is one of them. Milton has a history of making poor choices, and I believe one of them was marrying a woman who is trashy.  The only reason he is with her is because he makes too many decisions with his heart and not his head.  Didn't he "almost" file for divorce at one point? Why do you think he did that?  That's where he made the mistake..... when he didn't divorce that trash when he knew he should have. Like I said in my previous post, he made a poor decision by hitting his wife, but let's not act like this is a case where the husband is an out of control wife-beater and there's an innocent woman who hasn't done anything wrong.  He needed to step back on new years eve and simply walk away... for good.

Bradley's wife claims abuse

You didn't just try to jsutify domestic violence did you?
Tell me I read that incorrectly and you're not SERIOUSLY saying it's ok to hit your wife or in this case that Bradley did.
If you're saying that then you're an idiot! I don't want to be accused of ad homineum attacks but really when you make a statement like that I believe you're inviting criticism.
THIS attitude is exactly why guys like Bradley think they can get away with what they want when they want to and sooner or later it catches up with the player when there aren't any other opportunities for people to cover for him which of course comes as a shock to the player because he's ALWAYS gotten away with everything in the past.
It's just sad, very sad that some sports fans will defend their heroes, however flawed until the end.

Bad move by Milton. But that's a tough situation when you're in love with your wife and she's an untrustworthy B.

Bradley's wife claims abuse

Really guys, did you expect anything less of Milton Bradley? The guy has been a trainwreck on every team he's played for including the Rangers, Cubs, Dodgers and shouldn't be surprising that a guy so volatile beats up on women or anyone else who
is weaker than him. He's a cancer in the clubhouse...what a waste of talent.

GoBlues, I never said he had reedeming qualities. What I said was he needs help. Not to be playing baseball, or "Thrown in a ditch". And yes, in my spare team I crack women's heads open with coffee tables. You got me. Guilty!

Milton Bradley is a winner. Scoreboard! The guy has tiger blood. Laughing

Honestly, is this surprising? Bradley is a troubled guy and quite frankly a low-life. He's been enabled over-and-over again by coaches, managers, general managers, owners and his teammates. They've overlooked or forgiven him for his actions, too often making excuses. What he needed was for someone to be honest and come down hard on him and maybe this wouldn't have spiraled this far.

Bradley's rep makes it virtually impossible for anyone to believe him. He's the boy who cried wolf in a baseball uniform. He'll never change until he's forced to.
