Lenny Dykstra Charged With Drug Possession, Terroristic Threats

Former Mets center fielder, Lenny Dykstra, was arrested early this morning in New Jersey after an incident with an Uber driver, as detailed by Laura Italiano of the New York Post.

The 55-year old, according to police, was accused by the Uber driver of pulling out an unidentified weapon and threatening to kill the driver, a 47-year old from Roselle, NJ, after the driver refused a request from Dykstra to change his destination.

According to police, Dykstra was in possession of marijuana, cocaine, and ecstasy, but the police were unable to find the weapon.

As a result, Dykstra was charged by police for terroristic threats and drug possession while also being brought into custody at 3:30 a.m.

The police were alerted to the incident as the Uber driver was caught speeding into a parking garage while honking his horn repeatedly.

Dykstra was an outfielder for the Mets from 1985-1989 and played in the majors until 1996.

This is not the first time that Dykstra has been in trouble with the law as he got arrested for a drunk driving crash in 1991, a 1999 sexual harassment case, a 2011 sexual assault case, and also for allegedly exposing himself to at least six women on Craigslist.
