Former MLB outfielder Milton Bradley was convicted after a plea agreement with prosectors on his domestic violence case from January. 

According to TMZ Sports, Bradley pleaded no contest to domestic battery charges as part of the agreement and was sentenced to 36 months probation. Bradley, 40, was arrested in January after his wife said he "roughed her up" before leaving the scene.

"After the meal, the couple had a verbal dispute inside their Uber, which continued when they reached the home the couple shared in Encino," the police report said. "That night, Rachel Bradley told police that her husband grabbed her around the neck and threw her onto the couch."

The 2008 MLB All-Star has a long history of domestic violence. Police first responded to three domestic violence claims at his home in 2005, though no charges were filed. In 2011, he was arrested for making threats against his wife at the time; once again, no charges were filed.

He was later convicted on multiple counts of domestic violence in 2013. He served 15 months of a 32-month sentence.
