Milton Bradley was arrested in January for a domestic dispute with his wife. The former Cub’s attorney claims he won’t be charged, but a meeting next month will make it official.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles have scheduled a meeting with Seattle Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley after his felony arrest last month.

Bradley was scheduled for a court hearing earlier this week. That was changed and he’ll have a meeting with the prosecutor’s office early next month.

Bradley’s attorney, Harland Braun, released a statement through the Mariners on Friday stating that Bradley would not be charged following his Jan. 19 arrest on a domestic violence allegation.

Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, says it’s not an absolute that Bradley won’t be charged. A determination will be made after the March meeting.

In his statement, Braun says Bradley and his wife and children continue to live together.
