Former Major League Baseball outfielder and first baseman Josh Hamilton has been indicted following an incident with his teenage daughter last year. He will now be sentenced for the felony charge.
He was arrested in October after allegedly hitting and scratching his daughter last September. The 38-year-old has had some issues in his past.
Hamilton is free on a $30,000 bond, according to the Associated Press. If he is convicted of the charges that he is presently facing, he could be sentenced to two-to-10-years in prison.
His attorney claims that Hamilton is innocent in this case.
Now, he is facing a temporary restraining order against him by his ex-wife Katie. She made the temporary restraining order against Hamilton for her daughter, who is too young to officially file one herself.
According to ABC8 WFAA, Hamilton allegedly told his oldest daughter to tell the judge, ‘what a terrible dad I am,’ in an attempt to block him from getting visitation again. His daughter claimed in a Child Protective Services interview that the former Big Leaguer assaulted her and threw things at her.
She also claimed that she made a comment that upset him. He allegedly threw a water bottle at her, which reportedly hit her in the chest.
Hamilton also allegedly pulled a chair from underneath her and threw it at her. He also allegedly took her into a room and ‘pinned her head to the bed,’ and reportedly ‘hit her on the back and legs.’
Hamilton has three children with his ex-wife.
He last played in MLB in 2015. During his career, he played for the Texas Rangers, Cincinnati Reds, and the Los Angeles Angels in nine-plus seasons.
He has battled substance abuse and addiction in his life — especially during his playing career. He reportedly had a relapse in 2015.
