MLB outfielder Andrew Toles arrested on June 22 trespass charge after police found him sleeping behind Key West Airport, by Gwen Filosa of Miami herald.
Deputy Tomas Venegas of Monroe County Sheriff’s Office wrote in the police report that Toles, who had a black bag with him, refused to leave the premises despite being repeatedly asked by the police to do so.
He is detained at Stock Island Detention Center on a $ 500 bond and has a Filosa’s July 2 hearing date.
Toles played 96 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2016 to 2018, reaching 0.286 with eight homers and 35 RBI. He played in the 2016 National League playoffs, reaching 0.364 and posting an .878 OPS in 11 games.
According to Mike Oz of Yahoo Sports, Toles is still technically with the Dodgers, who placed him on the Restricted list after he didn’t show up for spring training in 2019.
Ken Gurnick from MLB.com then reported that Toles did not show up for “personal reasons”.
The Tampa Bay Rays picked Toles in the third round of the 2012 draft. Toles was successful among the miners, notably reaching 0.326 for the Single-A Bowling Green in 2013.
His professional baseball days ended, however, as Toles sought treatment for Pedro Moura of Athletic. He requested his release from the Rays in 2015 and went to a mental health facility treatment center in Atlanta.
Finally, the Dodgers signed Toles in September 2015 and left for the team’s teaching league. A year later, he played for the Dodgers in the playoffs.
