An appeals court has upheld a three-day jail sentence Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley was ordered to serve for driving away while being issued a speeding ticket.

The Ninth District Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the trial judge did not unfairly sentence Bradley after he pleaded guilty earlier this year to a charge of obstructing official business, a second degree misdemeanor. Bradley was a member of the Cleveland Indians when he was charged with driving 52 mph in a 25-mph zone when he was arrested Aug. 30, 2003, in Cuyahoga Falls, a northeast Ohio suburb.

Police said Bradley was issued a speeding ticket but would not sign it, rolled up his window and drove away.

His attorney, Robert McIntyre, previously said the offense did not merit jail time and would hurt Bradley professionally.

Bradley has 45 days to appeal the appeals court ruling to the Ohio Supreme Court.

If Bradley does not appeal, the municipal court will set a date for him to serve the jail sentence.

A message seeking comment from McIntyre was not immediately returned Wednesday.

Heh. I'd love to see a professional athlete or celebrity get a jail sentence for something such as this. Just watch.
