Warrant issued for Josh Hamilton out of Tarrant County / via Tarrant County Texas

An arrest warrant has been issued for former baseball player Josh Hamilton and alleges that Hamilton threw a chair hitting a child younger than 15.

From the arrest warrant:

Intentionally or knowingly cause bodily injury to a child younger than 15 years of age by throwing a chair towards her which broke and hit her in the leg causing pain and by placing his hand on the side of her face and pinning it to the bed as he struck her in the back with an open and closed fist which caused her pain.

[UPDATE] Hamilton turned himself in this afternoon at the Tarrant County Courthouse:

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.”

Hamilton, 38, had a career defined by drug and alcohol issues that finally stopped in 2005 and resulted in him getting into Major League Baseball with the Reds in 2007. He was traded later that year to Texas and had a great run from 2008-2012. And then he hit the motherlode with the Angels, who gave him a five-year, $125 million contract. He spent two years in Anaheim and was traded back to Texas and was out of baseball by 2015. All told, Hamilton made an astounding $140,610,579 over his career including about $57,000,000 to sit at home in 2016 and 2017.
