The sad story of former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles took an unfortunate turn this week after Toles was found asleep behind a Florida airport.

Toles was arrested and jailed when he refused requests to leave.

According to the Miami Herald, Toles was found asleep behind the Key West airport with nothing but a black book bag. On his arrest report, police listed his address as “the streets of Key West.”

From the Herald:

Police said they gave Toles several chances to leave the area without being arrested but he wouldn’t walk away, wrote Deputy Tomas Venegas.

On Friday, Toles remained at the Stock Island Detention Center on a $500 bond.

He has a court date set for July 2 before County Judge Peary Fowler.

Toles, 28, has publicly battled with the demons of depression and anxiety.

Toles played for the Dodgers as recently as 2018 and is currently on the restricted list. He failed to report to spring training in 2019 for an unspecified personal issue.

According to a profile from The Athletic that year, Toles then spent time in a mental health treatment center.

In the 2016 playoffs, Toles hit .364 and scored six runs for the Dodgers. But he missed most of 2017 due to a torn ACL. A feature story that year by NBC Los Angeles chronicled Toles’ professional life and struggles at the time.

Fans took to Twitter to implore the Dodgers to reach out and help the former fan favorite.
