To the surprise of no one, Lenny Dykstra was arrested again

Lenny Dykstra is back in the news. And to the surprise of no one, it’s for all the wrong reasons.

Nails was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly holding an Uber driver up with a weapon and was later charged for possession of drugs and terroristic threats.

NY POST:  The driver had picked Dykstra, 55, up in Linden — and the former player requested to change his destination, police there said. But the cabby refused.

Dykstra then allegedly pulled out a weapon and threatened to kill the driver, police said, without specifying what kind of weapon.

The hack fled the car, leaving Dykstra inside, police said. Cops searched the car and did not find a weapon — but Dykstra was found in possession of cocaine, marijuana and ecstasy, police said.

He was taken into custody at 3:30 a.m. and charged with making terroristic threats and drug possession.


I don’t even know what to say about Dykstra anymore. He’s been an absolute train wreck for years now. It’s sad that it has gotten to the point where I’m numb to hearing any of these stories involving Lenny Dykstra.

Thank god Dykstra was still half on his rocker before completely falling off shortly after leaving the Mets. There’s no telling what kind of trouble he would’ve gotten himself in if he had behaved like this in the Big Apple.

This driver obviously didn’t know who Lenny Dykstra was. Anyone that knows anything about Nails understands that you absolutely do not pick him up at 3:30 a.m. Nothing good can come from that.

P.S. I couldn’t help but think back to a reply tweet I received from Nails a few years back given today’s news…
