Former Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton was arrested on Wednesday on a third-degree felony charge of injury to a child. Hamilton turned himself in this afternoon at the Tarrant County Courthouse...
quote:

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, one of Hamilton’s daughters said in late September, they started fighting after she said something that upset him. Hamilton allegedly responded first by throwing a water bottle at her, hitting her in the chest. Cursing and yelling at her, he allegedly pulled a chair out from under where her feet were resting. The girl fell, landing on her hip, which she said caused a bruise. Hamilton then picked her up, threw her over his shoulder and carried her to her bedroom. The affidavit said she was yelling “I’m sorry,” but he continued on to her room. Once there, he allegedly threw her on the bed, pinning her face down on the bed. According to his daughter, he started hitting her legs with both an open hand and closed fist.

She then says, in the affidavit, that Hamilton picked up her by her sweatshirt, causing it to rip, pushed her back on the bed, and slapped her with his open hand on her back and her legs — leaving multiple scratches on her back that she said were from his fingernails.



Hamilton finished hitting her, and said, “I hope you go in front of the f*cking 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.”

I really hope it wasn’t as bad as stated. If so, he desperately needs anger management therapy.

I got the belt, the switch, the hair brush and ivory soap forced into my mouth and still love my parents and thank them for not raising a spoiled a-hole. I have no bitterness, emotional scars, or resentment and I am a contributor to society. I bet it didn’t happen they way she said it did. This nation is trying to force men to become so damn passive, pathetic and effeminate.

In the heat of obvious emotion the judge comment just seems a bit fabricated

Any time you read about stuff like this you have to consider the character of the accused attacker and the possibility of ex-wife aided embellishment. I know nothing about Josh Hamilton, so he may well be guilty, but I suspect ex-wives can be brutal.

Well I think he will get his wish of her not visiting his house anymore.

But nothing was done until the kid told her mom -- his ex-wife. Sounds to me like she's trying to keep him out of their kids' lives.

Sucks to hear. He was my favorite baseball player of all time, but what that guy allegedly did is inexcusable.
