Former Arizona Wildcats running back Orlando Bradford pleaded guilty to two felony counts of aggravated assault in a domestic violence case Friday morning, more than a year after his arrest on domestic violence-related charges.
He was taken into custody immediately after the Pima County Superior Court hearing.
Bradford was arrested last September after two women came forward to say that he'd assaulted them on more than one occasion, according to Arizona Daily Star archives.
He was subsequently charged with 10 felonies and five misdemeanors.
He now faces between two and seven-and-a-half years in prison. He also faces fines up to $150,000 and restitution of up to $50,000 for each of the two victims.
His sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 20.
Bradford's girlfriend at the time came forward to police last year after the pair argued about her reluctance to eat a Wendy's Frosty that he’d bought her, according to a Tucson Police Department’s incident report.
Later, the couple fought. Bradford pushed her onto the bed and began choking her, the report says.
The woman told police that Bradford let go of her neck, locked the bedroom door and took his shirt off before punching her in the ribs.
The day after the first arrest, a second woman came forward to say that she was also in a relationship with Bradford and he abused her multiple times between January and September.
Bradford entered the 2016 season as the Wildcats’ presumptive backup running back.
He played in two games, gaining 16 yards, before he was dismissed from the team on the day of his arrest.
