Cuyahoga Falls, OH (Sports Network) - Cleveland Indians outfielder Milton Bradley will spend three days in jail after he pled guilty Wednesday to a reduced charge of leaving the scene of a traffic stop.
Bradley was originally charged with speeding and failure to comply after he left the scene of a traffic spot without signing his speeding ticket. He was stopped when the police clocked him going 52 miles-per-hour in a 25-mph zone on August 30.
The speeding violation was dismissed, but Bradley pled guilty to a second degree misdemeanor, obstructing official business. The 25-year-old will also pay a $250 fine and court costs, and serve 40 hours of community service. He also apologized to the police officers during his court appearance.
Bradley is set to begin his three-day sentence on Tuesday.
Bradley was one of Cleveland's most consistent performers at the plate last year before a lower back injury ended his season prematurely on August 9.
At the time of his injury, Bradley was third in the American League in batting with a .321 average, and also led the team in runs, walks, doubles, runs batted in, hits and stolen bases.
Bradley was also solid in center field with a .992 fielding percentage, sixth- best in the AL. He made just two errors in 253 total chances and added six assists.
