Former Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley faces jail time.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley has been convicted of abusing his estranged wife.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney’s office says Bradley was convicted Monday of nine misdemeanor counts, including assault with a deadly weapon and spousal battery. Hey faces up to 7 1/2 years in jail at his sentencing scheduled for July 2.

Prosecutors say Bradley threatened and attacked his wife five times in 2011 and 2012.

Authorities say Bradley pushed his wife against a wall and choked her after she asked him to stop smoking marijuana in front of their two children and wanted his friends to leave their home.

Bradley played 11 years with the Dodgers, Montreal Expos, Cleveland Indians, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners.
