KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles was in jail Saturday on a trespassing charge.

The 28-year-old player was detained this week at the airport in Key West, Florida, by a Monroe County sheriff deputy.

A report by the sheriff’s office said Toles was found sleeping behind a Federal Express building at the airport and refused to move after several warnings by deputies that he had to leave or be arrested.

Jail records show Toles appeared to be homeless when arrested Monday on the misdemeanor charge of trespassing property.

His bond was set at $500 but he remained jailed and is scheduled for arraignment Thursday.

“We are unable to comment,” team spokesman Joe Jareck said Saturday.

Toles never reported to spring training in 2019 because of a personal matter and did not play that year. [Toles was scheduled to earn a reported $555,000 in 2019] (Story continues below video … )

He was the starting left fielder in the second half of 2016 and early in 2017.

In May of that year, he tore a knee ligament and spent most of 2018 at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Toles struggled with anxiety issues even before the Dodgers signed him to a minor league contract.

He was the Tampa Bay’s minor league player of the year in 2013 but was released in 2015.

He was working the early-morning shift in the frozen-food section of a grocery store before the Dodgers recruited him.

Toles played in 96 games for the Dodgers in the 2016, ’17, and ’18 seasons making a total of 249 plate appearances.
