TARRANT COUNTY, TX. (THECOUNT) — Former Texas Rangers Josh Hamilton turned himself in this afternoon in Fort Worth on an allegation of injury to a child, a 3rd degree felony.

Hamilton, 38, turned himself in at the Tarrant County Courthouse just after 2 p.m. A $35,000 bond was set.


One of his bond conditions was not to have contact with one of his daughters, and then that was expanded to any child under 17, reports DWFCBS.

Hamilton was inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame after spending five memorable seasons with the Rangers. During his time with the team from 2008 to 2012, he helped lead the Rangers to two World Series appearances and won AL MVP in 2010. He was also selected for the MLB All-Star games in those five seasons.

He joined the Rangers after being traded from the Cincinnati Reds in December 2007. That’s when Hamilton said he became “part of something truly incredible for the next five seasons.”
