He accepted the 51-month plea agreement and was released in October after serving 34 months and will now get another chance to play baseball.
Bush, 29, was selected as the No. 1 overall pick by the Padres out of Mission Bay High as a shortstop in 2004 and has never reached the majors as he’s had multiple run-ins with the law.
Shortly after being drafted he was arrested for his part in a bar fight in Arizona.
After struggling to hit in the minors, the Padres converted Bush to a pitcher but suffered a setback when he had Tommy John surgery in 2008.
The Blue Jays then released Bush after a drunken run-in with the police while at a party in Dunedin, Florida.
Tampa Bay then signed him in 2011 and he was in their minor league system until the incident in 2012.
