Former Los Angeles Dodgers star Milton Bradley is facing some serious prison time.

Bradley, who also played for several other teams, has been charged with abusing his wife, Monique, and faces up to 13 years in jail if convicted. The Los Angeles city prosecutors charged him with 13 misdemeanor counts of assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism and dissuading a witness from making a report on Thursday. He denies all charges.

ESPN reports all of the charges relate to his wife’s accusations of spousal abuse. Bradley, who is free on bond, could also face up to $13,000 in fines and restitution if convicted. His arraignment is Jan. 24.

Prosecutors believe Bradley is a habitual abuser. He allegedly threatened and attacked his wife five times in 2011 and 2012. He was twice arrested at the home in 2011.

During one incident in November 2012, Bradley allegedly pushed his wife against a kitchen wall and choked her with both hands after she requested that he stop smoking marijuana in front of their children and requested that his friends leave her San Fernando Valley home,” said a statement from the city attorney’s office.

Bradley was arrested in August 2011 for allegedly attacking Monique with a bat, and in March 2012 he allegedly threatened her with a knife and said, “You’ll be dead b-tch before you divorce me.”

The couple, who have two children, are separated and in the middle of a nasty divorce. Bradley hasn’t played baseball since the Mariners released him in 2011. He played 11 years in the MLB.
