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.

Report: Milton Bradley threatened to kill wife

His whole career says malcontent, and a malcontent is full of anger, bitterness, and depression.  It's a shame really.  He needs somebody to sit him down and help him clarify what's really important in life, and get over his bad start.
I agree that Bradley could use someone he trust and respect to have a talk with him, but Bradley would want to change for it to matter.  Now if Bradley don't believe that he is doing nothing wrong then he will never try to change, don't matter what anyone said to him.

Pathetic what an idiot Milton Bradley is. Why doesn`t MLB step in look it should have some ten years ago and get this guy professional help before he does kill someone. He`ll end up broke and desperate like every other Dykstra like loser.
I believe the reason that MLB won't step in and try to Bradley the help he need, Is that Bradley is not under contract with any MLB team. Last I heard Seattle cut ties with him, so Bradley is a former MLB player

Report: Milton Bradley threatened to kill wife

This is what happens when you give a child a name you think is funny.  He's probably had it up to his eyeballs with the game board comments his whole life, and his clever parents probably never said no to him, because of his athletic skills.  Now that's a toxic combination.  His whole career says malcontent, and a malcontent is full of anger, bitterness, and depression.  It's a shame really.  He needs somebody to sit him down and help him clarify what's really important in life, and get over his bad start.

Each state has different laws.  In California it is illegal.  Even if he did not have a photo of a gun, the threat alone will do it, as long as the victim believers the suspect will carryout the threat.

Yes, it is illegal, if the victim believes the suspect will carry out the threat.

Report: Milton Bradley threatened to kill wife

Milton is from my home town.  He's always been a bad-ass.  Baseball has kept him occupied and reduced opportunities for his sociopathic behavior to menace the general public.  Baseball has also sent him to anger management classes and to psychologists.  He has refused to take meds (understandable). When baseball ends for Milton I'm afraid he'll find his next occupation in San Quentin.
