Mets' Lenny Dykstra Arrested Again

Former Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra was charged Monday on 25 criminal counts, including the stealing of three cars and being in possession of Ecstasy, cocaine, and a steroid. Dykstra, who is out on bail on bankruptcy fraud charges, said he could not afford to post the $500,000 bail. Dykstra said “of course” he is not guilty, and said the “the car got stolen all right—by them.” Prosecutors said Dykstra and his co-defendants allegedly tried to lease expensive cars through a phony business, using fraudulent information and claiming another man was the co-signer to get credit. The man, Wilberto Hernandez, said he only learned of the scheme when the leases showed up on his credit-card statement. As for the drugs, prosecutors said Dykstra had them on him when he was arrested April 14 in the bankruptcy fraud case.
