Bradley Charged with Disorderly Conduct

Article excerpt

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley was charged with disorderly conduct after interfering with a traffic stop near Akron, Ohio.

The charge came after police stopped a woman for weaving on a highway Thursday. Police say Bradley, who was driving another car ahead of the woman, argued with the stop.

"He started screaming to the officer something to the effect of, 'Why are you stopping my friend?' " Copley Township Police Chief Michael Mier said Monday. "The officer had to tell him several times to return to his vehicle and he refused to do so."

At one point, Mier said, Bradley put his hands behind his back and "said arrest me." Mier said.

The officer did, and charged Bradley with the fourth-degree misdemeanor. The woman, identified only as a friend of Bradley's, was not charged.
