Monroe arrested, released on $500 bond
Monroe wrapped the belt around his waist and tried to leave the store without paying Friday, according to the arrest report. He posted $500 bond and was released from county jail that day.
Monroe is scheduled to face arraignment Dec. 15 on a second-degree misdemeanor charge of petit theft.
He hit .293 with 18 home runs and 72 RBI in 128 games for the Tigers last season, when he earned $335,000.
Tigers spokesman Brian Britten said Tuesday the team would not comment.
