WFANFormer Mets great Lenny Dykstra, 55, was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly put a gun to the head of an Uber driver. Apparently, the Uber driver drove Dykstra to the Linden Police Department’s headquarters around 3:30 a.m. ET after the two had a disagreement regarding Dykstra’s request to update the destination of the scheduled ride. Upon arriving police found cocaine, MDMA (Ecstasy/Molly) and marijuana among Dykstra’s belongings. The cops said that no weapon was recovered, but Dykstra, also known as “Nails,” has been charged with drug offenses and making terroristic threats. He was released on a summons and is due in court next month. Dykstra has been very active on Twitter Wednesday, however, he hasn’t mentioned anything about the arrest.
In non-shocking news, Lenny Dykstra has been arrested again, this time for drug possession and making terroristic threats. Dykstra apparently tried to update the destination of his Uber ride, an argument ensued between Dykstra and his Uber driver, and Dykstra allegedly pulled a gun and held it to his Uber driver’s head. The Uber driver drove Dykstra near police headquarters, at which point he began speeding and honking the horn to get the attention of the cops, at which point police responded and the driver fled the vehicle leaving Dykstra inside. When police searched the vehicle no weapon was found, but Dykstra was found to be in possession of cocaine, marijuana and ecstasy, so he was arrested for drug possession and for making terroristic threats towards the driver. Just another day in the life of “Nails”.
