Mitchell was arrested Wednesday afternoon at the Bonita Golf Club on suspicion of misdemeanor battery, according to sheriff’s officials.
The 1989 National League MVP was released Thursday morning on bail.
A San Diego native, Mitchell played for the Padres for one season in 1987. He’s also had more than one run-in with the law. In 1999, Mitchell was arrested by San Diego police after a fight at his grandmother’s Southcrest home. Mitchell was charged with felony battery after police said the baseball player struck his father in the head, cutting him.
