Josh Hamilton indicted for injury to a child

Former Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton was indicted in Tarrant County on a felony charge of injury to a child.

Hamilton is accused of beating an underage family member at his home in Keller this past September.

An arrest affidavit states he threw a chair at the child, then hit the child repeatedly on the legs and back.

Hamilton is currently free on bond. In January, a judge ordered him to stay away from the child.

He faces up to 10 years in prison if he’s found guilty.
