This silly son of an ITCHBAY just got a 2 million dollar signing bonus in 2009 and he STEALING?? From MACY’S???
CINCINNATI – Former Arizona State baseball star and now Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike Leake was arrested on a shoplifting charge at a downtown department store Monday, accused of trying to steal six shirts with a total value of $59.88.
The 23-year-old starter was booked at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a first-degree misdemeanor charge of shoplifting. It carries a maximum of 180 days in jail.
He was arrested about two hours before Cincinnati pitchers were expected at Great American Ball Park to take batting practice before the final game of a series against Pittsburgh. Leake started and got the victory in an 11-2 win over the Pirates on Saturday.
The Reds were trying to get details of the arrest and had no immediate comment.
Police arrest reports said Leake removed the price tags from six American Rag T-shirts at a Macy’s store and tried to leave without paying for them. Leake makes $425,000 in his second season in the majors.
What the hell did this jerk do with all his money?!?! If he’s stealing $60 worth of shirts then either he has a serious problem with kleptomania or he’s blowing money faster than Rick Ross at strip club buffet.
