DEVELOPING: Reds Leake Busted On Theft Charge

((HT: WCPO-TV Cincinnati))

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike Leake has been arrested for stealing from a local department store- at the downtown Macy's store in Cincinnati Monday afternoon.

Police say he was caught on security camera leaving the store without paying for six American Rag shirts valued at $59.88. He was booked on one count of misdemeanor theft.

The former Arizona State Sun Devil is due to make $425,000 this season.

Leake is 2-0 with a 5.40 ERA so far this season.
He's scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.

The HQ would love to know what the northern bureau thinks of this one... on multiple levels...
