The former Texas Rangers was arrested Wednesday on one felony count of injury to a child 14 or younger, according to court documents obtained by The Dallas Morning News.

According to the report, one of the bond conditions prohibited Hamilton from contacting one of his three daughters or any child under the age of 17. Following the comment, Hamilton allegedly threw a full bottle overhand at the teen - striking her squarely in the chest - then cursed and shouted at her. She also told child protective services he pulled a chair out from under her, threw it at her, pushed her face down on a bed, hit her on her hands and back with both an open hand and a closed fist.

According to multiple reports, the incident stemmed from an altercation with his daughter on September 30, just one day after Hamilton was in attendance for a ceremony commemorating the end of Globe Life Park. She said when he threw the chair, it hit her.

The girl said at this point she was telling Hamilton, "I'm sorry".

As he left the room, he told her to gather her things for school.
