Lenny Dykstra arrested with drugs after threatening Uber driver
Former MLB star Lenny Dykstra is in legal hot water again.
Dykstra was arrested Wednesday morning in New Jersey after allegedly pulling a gun on an Uber driver and threatening to kill him. At the time of his arrest, he was found with cocaine and ecstasy.
According to TMZ Sports, the driver alleges that Dykstra asked him to change his destination during the ride, and the former New York Met brandished a gun and put it to his head. The driver began honking his horn to try to attract police before ultimately vacating the car and flagging down law enforcement.
Officers said no gun was found when Dykstra was arrested, but cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana were found. He was arrested for making terroristic threats, as well as drug possession.
Dykstra has had a rather rough time in retirement. This is only the latest chapter.
