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.
