    Josh Hamilton arrested for felony charge of injury to a child

    Five-time MLB All-Star Josh Hamilton was arrested on a charge of injury to a child in Fort Worth, Texas on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

    CBS DFW reports that Hamilton turned himself in at the Tarrant County courthouse on the third-degree felony charge and faced a $35,000 bond.

    According to the report, one of the bond conditions prohibited Hamilton from contacting one of his three daughters or any child under the age of 17.

    An arrest warrant affidavit obtained by CBS DFW states that one of Hamilton’s daughters accused him in September of escalating an argument into a physical altercation.

    She accuses Hamilton of throwing a water bottle at her, cursing at her and pulling a chair from under her legs, causing her to fall, according to the report. He allegedly threw the chair, which broke, with part of it striking her.

    He then allegedly picked her up and carried her over his shoulder into her bedroom, where she claims he threw her on her bed, pinned her face down and repeatedly hit her on her back and legs with an open hand and closed fist, leaving scratch marks on her back from his fingernails.

    According to the affidavit, Hamilton then told her he hoped the situation would end up in court.

    “I hope you go in front of the f---ing judge and tell him what a terrible dad I am so I don’t have to see you anymore and you don’t ever have to come to my house again,” Hamilton allegedly said.

    The Dallas Morning News reports that the alleged victim told her mother and Hamilton’s ex-wife, Katie Hamilton, about the incident, prompting her to seek a protective order in family court.

    I wonder if its related to his previous substance abuse. Sure he could be an ******* sober but given Hamilton's history with drug and alcohol abuse, it wouldn't surprise me.

    I wouldn't expect anything better from a crackhead.

    He was such a good role model when he finally got clean. Then he just relapsed all over again. The minute he divorced his ex wife, I knew he would be a d-bag all over again. After all she had to go through with him, for him to dump her like that... Hope he rots in prison

    A crack head was a great role model. Sure.

    I don't see why reformed addicts can't be role models.

    I don't disagree at all, but

    We're talking about a guy who ****ed up the early parts of his career bc of drugs, then had a few good seasons, then failed more drug tests but mlb for some reason decided not to suspend him, flamed out of baseball about the same time and is now a child beater.

    There is literally nothing "role model" about this guy.

    He relapsed near the end of his career as well. Divorced his wife too, after she stood by him for all of that.

    This dude clearly has some demons, but there is no need to take it out on the kids. If you can't be around them, let them stay with the mom.

    Sounds like that decision has been made for him at this point.

    No doubt but it shouldn't get to that point.

    Sometimes sobriety can lead to this stuff. My stepdad became way worse at managing his emotions when he stopped drinking. He had no stress management outlet.
    Took him like 10 years to figure it out. Exercise ended up being the key.
