Lenny Dykstra indicted on drug possession, other chargesSporting News — (Travis Durkee)
Former MLB All-Star Lenny Dykstra has been indicted on three charges stemming from an incident with an Uber driver in May.
Dykstra, 55, is charged with making terroristic threats and two counts of possession of a controlled substance (cocaine and methamphetamine), NJ.com reported.
The New Jersey driver, 47-year-old Brian Lutty, accused Dykstra of threatening to kill him after he refused to change the final destination of the trip. Lutty instead drove Dykstra to the Linden (N.J.) police headquarters.
Dykstra refused Lutty’s claims and told the New York Daily News in May he was kidnapped by Lutty.
"The guy went nuclear on me," said Dykstra. "He f—ing kidnapped me and almost killed me going 100 mph. He locked me in his f—ing car, and he wouldn't let me out."
Lutty told police Dykstra held a weapon to his head, but no weapon was found in the car when Dykstra was arrested.
Since retiring in 1998, Dykstra has admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs, been indicted for bankruptcy fraud and sentenced to three years in prison after pleading no contest to three grand theft auto charges.
