Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike Leake will seek a diversion program after being arrested for theft, his attorney told FOX19 on Tuesday.

Leake had an arraignment scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, but the case was continued until May 18. The Reds are in a home stand that day.

Leake is accused of stealing $59 worth of shirts from the Macy's department store in downtown Cincinnati on Monday.

Leake's attorney, Alex Triantafilou, told FOX19 that Leake will be screened for a diversion program.

Diversion programs are defined as follows under Ohio Revised Code 2935.36:

  • (A) The prosecuting attorney may establish pre-trial diversion programs for adults who are accused of committing criminal offenses and whom the prosecuting attorney believes probably will not offend again. The prosecuting attorney may require, as a condition of an accused's participation in the program, the accused to pay a reasonable fee for supervision services that include, but are not limited to, monitoring and drug testing.

There is still no word on if Leake will make his scheduled start against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
