(CBS) Law officials in Los Angeles say former Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley has been arrested for investigation of felony battery.

According to the LA Times, outfielder Milton Bradley was arrested after allegedly swinging a bat at his wife — and missing — at his San Fernando Valley home, Los Angeles police said Wednesday.

Bradley, 33, was booked on suspicion of felony assault Tuesday afternoon at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Van Nuys Division jail.

Investigating officers said the incident began as a verbal argument that escalated when Bradley took out a baseball bat and began swinging it at his wife, who ran out of the home.

He was arrested at his house in January for allegedly threatening a woman, but no charges were filed.

Bradley signed a three-year, $30-million deal with the Cubs in January of 2009 but was suspended in September of 2009 for the remainder of the season. He was traded to the Mariners that off-season.
