Andrew Toles needs a lot of help and he won’t find that being locked up in jail.
The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder was arrested June 22 on a misdemeanor charge of trespassing after police reportedly found him sleeping behind the Key West airport, per Gwen Filosa of the Miami Herald.
Deputy Tomas Venegas of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said Toles refused to leave the premises despite police asking him multiple times to do so. He is currently being held at Stock Island Detention Center on a $500 bond and has a July 2 court date, per Filosa.
Mike Oz of Yahoo Sports added that he is technically still a member of the Dodgers, who placed him on the restricted list after he did not report to spring training in 2019.
Toles played 96 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2016-2018, hitting .286 with eight home runs and 35 RBI.
Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reported back in 2019 that Toles did not report to camp for “personal reasons.” It was back in 2015 when he asked for his release from the Rays and checked into a mental health treatment center in Atlanta.
Hopefully, he can get the help he so desperately needs.
