1109_milton_bradley_01Former Los Angeles Dodger Milton Bradley was charged today with 13 counts related to several alleged attacks on his estranged wife, and could get up to 13 years behind bars ... TMZ has learned.

The City Attorney’s Office has filed charges against Bradley stemming from 5 different incidents. The charges break down like this: 4 counts of spousal battery, 4 counts of criminal threats, 2 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, 2 counts of vandalism and 1 count of dissuading a witness from making a report.

As TMZ first reported, Milton's wife Monique filed a domestic violence report with the LAPD back in November 2012 ... claiming he tried to choke her, with 2 hands, when she asked him to stop smoking marijuana in front of their kids.

Bradley was arrested in August 2011 for allegedly attacking Monique with a bat, and in March 2012 he allegedly threatened her with a knife and said, "You’ll be dead bitch before you divorce me."

Both Monique and Milton have filed for divorce.

Bradley's camp had no comment.

If he tried to hit her with a bat, I'm sure it was a swing and a miss.

Dear God, another one. What the hell is going on with athletes lately? Mrs. Bradley better have some security for herself (and I don't mean a barking dog or an alarm system). I like security that comes numbered, like 9, 22, 38, 44. This Milton Bradley isn't playing games.

Proving once again for the umpteenth time - Marriage is the ONLY war where you sleep with the enemy. Best scam though for the lawyers and the soon to be ex-wife in obtaining FREE MONEY ! And getting rich.

I doubt very seriously that this man just went and started choking this woman when she asked him to stop smoking marijuana in front of their kids. I'm sure she said and did more than just ask. Women, because they know that the law is on their side, are excellent at provoking anger. I mean, d*ck s*ckers are a dime a dozen; leave these b!tches alone. Please, bruthaz, leave them alone. There's too many nukkaz out here willing to s*ck you dry.

Milton Bradley got away with kicking door in Clubhouse security guard bac on sept 29 2004. (i know former clubhouse securtity guard very well. He was hit with the door in the leg, back and head. Nothing was done and its sad that this guy got away with sooo much until now. Thank god he did not kill his wife and she was able to finally fight back against him

This shouldn't be so hard, but it is.

Respect comes begrudgingly to the Dodgers, if at all. Like it's painful. Like the brain can't quite compute the numbers that scream out: They're actually a very good team.

Maybe not the '27 Yankees, maybe not even the '88 Dodgers, but a team closing in on its first postseason in eight years. A team that will finish with 90-plus wins.

True, a team with an extremely volatile player in Milton Bradley, who proved Tuesday he can go off the deep end at any time.

His performance in right field in the eighth inning was absolutely embarrassing. Angry at himself for dropping a flyball for an error, he picked up a plastic beer bottle thrown his way, walked over to the crowd by the foul pole, screamed at them and then slammed the bottle down.

Pulled away by teammates, he then cursed umpire Marvin Hudson and was ejected. He dropped his cap and glove and took off his jersey as he walked off the field. Stopped at the top of the dugout steps and undressed some booing fans.

He dressed quickly, stormed out of the clubhouse, flinging the door open so hard it hit a security guard and said: ``Don't say nothing to me. Leave me the (expletive) alone.''

He was escorted away by team vice president Lon Rosen and presumably given a pacifier.

Thank godness his wife finally had the courage to fight back against him and make him pay for being such a baaad person.
