Bush sentenced to six months in rehab
EL CAJON, Calif. -- Former top major league draft pick Matt Bush has been sentenced to six months in a rehabilitation program stemming from two incidents this year.
Bush was sentenced Tuesday in San Diego Superior Court after he pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor counts. He also must complete 240 hours of community service and pay $4,400 in fines.
Bush was arrested in June for investigation of drunken driving, vandalism and resisting arrest. He also was accused in February of assaulting members of a high school lacrosse team. The sentencing on Tuesday covered both incidents.
