Andrew Toles has taken a sad turn, as Toles was found this week sleeping behind a Florida airport, then arrested and jailed when he refused requests to leave.
Police gave Toles several chances to leave the area without arresting him, but he did not leave.
“Andrew Alvin Toles was arrested June 22 on a misdemeanor charge of trespassing after he refused to leave the area, according to the arrest report from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.”
Police listed his address as the “streets of Key West.” Toles was sleeping behind the Federal Express building, located at Key West International Airport, 3491 S. Roosevelt Blvd. All he had with him was a black book bag, deputies said.”
Toles played for the Dodgers in 2018 and spent last year on the restricted list after failing to report to spring training, citing personal issues, according to a report from the Miami Herald.
Toles became a postseason star for the Dodgers in 2016 but tore a knee ligament in May 2017 and spend most of 2018 at Triple-A Oklahoma City.In 2019, Toles did not report to Spring Training and was placed on the restricted list. He arrived at the Camelback Ranch facility in April, but left by May for personal reasons. He has not rejoined the Dodgers since, prompting many fans to speculate to his whereabouts and mental health.
After his release, Toles reportedly spent time in a mental health facility and even worked at a local Kroger grocery store until he received a call from Dodgers’ President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman. Toles’ was offered a second chance and made the most of it until his demons returned in 2019.
Toles remained in custody on a $500 bond Friday and was due in court next month.NBC LA reached out to the Detention Center and was transferred to the county jail who confirmed he is in the process of being released on bail.
