Former Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley was freed on bail Wednesday after his arrest on suspicion of felony battery.

Los Angeles police arrested Bradley at his home in the San Fernando Valley. That’s the same location where authorities took him into custody in January, after a woman claimed he had threatened her. Prosecutors never charged him in connection with that arrest.

Bradley’s record includes his suspension by the Dodgers in 2004 for throwing a plastic bottle into the stands at Dodger Stadium. Three months after that, police officers in Ohio arrested him when he allegedly confronted one of them during a traffic stop.

The Dodgers traded Bradley to Oakland a year later. Then he played for San Diego, Texas, Chicago and Seattle — the team that released the 33-year-old earlier this year.

Milton Bradley is scheduled to appear in a Van Nuys courtroom on Oct. 18.
