Former Dodger outfielder Milton Bradley was arrested Tuesday for allegedly making threats against a woman, police said.

Bradley was taken into custody about 10 a.m. in the 5300 block of Oak Park Court in Encino, the Los Angeles Police Department said. The identity of the woman or details of the alleged threats were not released.

Bradley was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats at the Van Nuys jail, where he was released Tuesday evening after posting $50,000 bail, said Officer Karen Rayner.

In November 2004,  Bradley was arrested after he allegedly confronted a police officer during a traffic stop in Ohio.

The Dodgers traded Bradley to the Oakland A's in 2005 after he threw a plastic water bottle toward fans at Dodger Stadium and had a clubhouse confrontation with former Times reporter Jason Reid.

[Corrected at 8:25 p.m.: A previous version of this post said Bradley played this past season for the Texas Rangers. He played with the Seattle Mariners.]
