LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Los Angeles prosecutors said former Major Leaguer outfielder Milton Bradley was being charged with allegedly repeated incidents of domestic violence.

Bradley was charged with 13 misdemeanor counts stemming from five alleged incidents involving his estranged wife in 2011 and 2013, the Los Angeles City Attorney's office said in a written statement.

Bradley, 34, faces arraignment in Van Nuys Jan. 24 on charges including vandalism and assault with a deadly weapon, the statement said. Specifically he was accused specifically of menacing his ex with a baseball bat and a knife in separate incidents.

Bradley spent 12 years in the Majors, including two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers during which time he got into an altercation with a sportswriter and threw a water bottle at some fans, the Los Angeles Times said.

The incidents resulted in Bradley being traded to the Oakland Athletics in 2005. His career ended in 2011 when he was released by Seattle.
