Mike Leakes Mug Shot

Is this crazy or what? Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Mike Leake was arrested for shoplifting at a downtown Cincinnati Macy’s Monday, accused of trying to steal six American Rag T-shirts with a total value of $59.88. (Simple math: He was accused of stealing shirts priced at $9.98. Really?) The 23-year-old righty starter was booked on a first-degree misdemeanor charge of shoplifting, which carries a maximum of 180 days in jail. According to the police report (here), the incident was captured by store security cameras. His mug shot was released by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. Leake makes $425,000 a year and is only the 21st player to go from the draft to the majors since 1965. In his second season, he is 2-0 in three starts with a 5.40 ERA.
