Lenny Dykstra Arrested For Threatening To Kill Uber Driver



Former baseball star Lenny Dykstra, who starred for the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies during his career, is making headlines for all the wrong reasons yet again.

Dykstra was arrested early Wednesday after police in New Jersey say that he threatened to kill his Uber driver while carrying a number of drugs, according to The Courier Post.

Per the report:

The driver ran from the car and told the officers that moments earlier he had picked up Dykstra in Linden for a scheduled fare. Dykstra tried to change the destination, and when the driver refused, Dykstra allegedly put a weapon to his head and threatened to kill him, police said.

No weapon was located, but police said they did recover a quantity of cocaine, MDMA and marijuana among Dykstra’s belongings.

According to the report, Dykstra was charged with third-degree making terroristic threats and possession of cocaine, marijuana and MDMA.
