Josh Hamilton arrested on charge of injury to child

He was placed in the Tarrant County Jail in Fort Worth, Texas, before being released on a $35,000 bond.

Hamilton can not possession firearms or ammunition; and he can not stalk, follow or engage in conduct directed specifically toward the applicant for the order, who is his ex-wife, or the children, that is likely to harass, annoy, alarm, abuse, torment or embarrass them, according to court documents.

Hamilton, who used profanity and was yelling, grabbed the chair on which the girl had her feet propped and pulled it from under her. Hamilton threw the chair and she was able to mostly move out of the way. She fell to the floor, from which he lifted her, threw her over his shoulder and carried her to her bedroom.

"Josh Hamilton voluntarily surrendered himself to Tarrant County authorities today".

When they reached her door, Hamilton stopped and threw the girl onto her bed, according to the affidavit.

The youngster said at this point they over and over told Hamilton "I'm sorry", yet as they contacted their room entryway, they apparently tossed their on the bed and squeezed their face into the bedding before hitting their legs with an open hand and shut clench hand.

Hamilton, 38, played nine seasons of MLB baseball from 2007 to 2015.

Josh Hamilton is back in the news and, once again, it is for all the wrong reasons.

The affidavit said that his daughter made a comment that upset him in September.

He has a history of both drug and alcohol abuse throughout his playing career.

Josh Hamilton played in two World Series and won an MVP with the Texas Rangers.

"The Texas Rangers take the issue of family violence very seriously", the team wrote in a statement. He was recovering from shoulder surgery when the Angels traded him back to Texas in 2015 after his two injury-plagued seasons with Los Angeles.

Across parts of nine seasons, Hamilton was a five-time All-Star, a three-time Silver Slugger Award victor, and the victor of the 2010 AL MVP Award.
