Former Dodgers player Andrew Toles was arrested in Florida a couple weeks ago after police found him sleeping behind an airport, the L.A. Times reports.
According to Toles’ sister and a USA Today piece, Toles, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, has been in and out of numerous mental health facilities and is now homeless.
Morgan Toles, his sister, is now expressing the family’s relief to see her brother alive. She says the former player is in desperate need of help and that the family is attempting to gain legal guardianship of Toles, but that requires Toles’ consent. She questioned, how do you help someone who doesn’t want to be helped? It’s a problem many families struggle with, and during times of COVID-19 it may be even more of a challenge.
