Most serious charges dropped against Dykstra
ELIZABETH, N.J. — A judge has dropped drug and terroristic threat charges filed against former Major League Baseball player Lenny Dykstra, stemming from an altercation with an Uber driver.
A judge dismissed the charges Friday after Dykstra pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was fined $125.
Dykstra says he is “happy this chapter of my life is behind me.”
The three-time All-Star, who was a member of the New York Mets‘ 1986 championship team, said the driver tried to kidnap him after he asked to change the trip’s destination.
The driver told police Dykstra held a gun to his head, though no weapon was found.
The driver tells NJ.com that Dykstra has “admitted to what he did in my car.”
A kidnapping complaint filed against the driver is pending.
