Bradley was with Indians at time

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio -- Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder
Milton Bradley began serving a three-day jail sentence on Wednesday
for driving away while being issued a speeding ticket more than a
year ago.

Bradley's appeals in the case were exhausted last week when the
Ohio Supreme Court ruled that the trial judge did not unfairly
sentence him. He also argued that the offense did not merit jail
time and would hurt him professionally.

Bradley, 26, was a member of the Cleveland Indians when he was
charged with driving 52 mph in a 25-mph zone when he was arrested
Aug. 30 last year in northeast Ohio.

Police said Bradley was issued a speeding ticket but would not
sign it, rolled up his window and drove away.

Bradley pleaded guilty this year to a charge of obstructing
official business, a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to the jail
time, 40 hours' community service and a $250 fine.

His lawyer, Scott Dean, did not immediately return a message
seeking comment Wednesday.

The outfielder faces a Feb. 22 trial in Barberton Municipal
Court on a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct stemming from a
Nov. 25 arrest for interfering with someone else's traffic stop. If
convicted, he could receive 30 days in jail or a $250 fine.

Bradley, known to have a quick temper, was suspended for five
games in late September by the commissioner's office for slamming a
plastic bottle into the front row at Dodger Stadium after a fan
threw it onto the field.
