Dodgers: An Update on Andrew Toles’ Legal Battle

Dodgers fans have been eagerly waiting on an update on Andrew Toles for several months now. After being arrested on a trespassing charge in late June of 2020, a report came out about the mental health and well-being of Toles via USA Today. 

The good news is that things have taken a small turn for the better for the former Dodgers outfielder. The latest court records from Monroe County reveal that the charges against Toles have been dropped. The exact term used in the case is a Nolle Prosequi, or “will no longer prosecute”. 

The court records also reveal that Toles has taken steps to address his struggles with mental illness, including a lengthy inpatient treatment. No other information was provided on the former Dodgers outfielder.

Toles was found sleeping behind an airport in Key West, Florida last Summer. He was originally arrested and charged with misdemeanor trespassing while being held on a $500 bond. Dodgers fans around the country became immediately involved in the case as this was the first time Toles’ name had popped up since leaving the team for personal reasons. 

Toles’ family spoke at length with USA Today about Andrew’s mental health struggles over the years in the weeks following the arrest. Their biggest concern was his safety since they had not had contact with him for an extended period of time. Dodgers’ President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman briefly spoke about Toles’ situation and the hope that they could help. 

We at Dodgers Nation wish Andrew all of the best, he will always be loved in Los Angeles.
