SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley has been arrested in Los Angeles on a felony charge and released from jail on $50,000 bail.
According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department booking records, Bradley was arrested Tuesday morning and released from custody at around 5:45 p.m. The booking records did not specify the nature of the charge.
The Mariners released a statement late Tuesday night saying they are aware of Bradley’s arrest. General manager Jack Zduriencik says the team takes the situation “very seriously” and adds that the Mariners “are in the process of determining the full circumstances of what occurred today.”
