We all got pretty sad this week when we heard the news of Andrew Toles. The former Dodgers’ outfielder was arrested earlier in the week for trespassing when he refused to leave the back of an airport in Florida.
At the last report, Toles was still in jail pending the $500 bond. The latest update is that Toles has been released from jail, and will face a court date for the misdemeanor in July. The former player had stepped away from baseball, and the last real updated we got from the Dodgers was in the spring of last year.
Andrew Toles was released from jail on $500 bond last night, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
He was arrested early Tuesday. Police said they found him sleeping behind the Key West airport and he refused to move. They charged him with misdemeanor trespassing.

It’s a tough situation and one that many Dodgers fans have been upset by. Toles was certainly a fan favorite in his short time in Los Angeles, especially with his backstory. Luckily, it sounds like everything that can be done to help him is already in the works.
Dodgers’ analyst Jerry Hairston Jr let fans know that the team has been made aware of the situation, and that help is on the way. From what it sounds like, if Toles wants the help, it will be there for him.
