Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles was arrested this week after police said he was found sleeping behind a Florida airport and refused to leave.
The former Dodger was found asleep behind a Federal Express building at the Key West Airport in Florida, according to the Miami Herald. After given several chances by police to move, he wouldn’t and was arrested on June 22, charged with a misdemeanor charge of trespassing.
Toles did not report to spring training in 2019, and the Dodgers announced that he was dealing with a personal matter and was out indefinitely. He was placed on the restricted list at the start of the season. He did eventually report to camp on April 30 for extended spring training but he left the club a month later to return to his family. He did not return to the team during the 2019 season and did not appear in any games.
It would appear that Toles may be homeless. He listed his address as “the streets”. His only possession was reportedly a book bag of some sort.He has a history of mental health issues, including depression and anxiety.
He was then taken into custody and booked into the Stock Island Detention Center on a $500 bond and is still in custody.
