Judge orders Josh Hamilton to stay away from family member
FORT WORTH, Texas - A Tarrant County judge extended an order keeping former Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton away from a family member.
A lawyer for Hamilton’s ex-wife filed the motion.
When Hamilton was arrested for injury to a child in October, the warrant stated he got violent toward a juvenile family member.
He’s accused of punching the child in the back and throwing a chair which broke and hit the child’s leg.
As he left the courtroom Wednesday, Hamilton told FOX 4 there will be a day when he can talk about the case but now is not the time.
Hamilton’s lawyers previously said the athlete looks forward to clearing his name in court.
