Lenny Dykstra’s Felony Charges Were Dismissed

Remember a few months back, when Lenny Dykstra was indicted by a grand jury on charges of cocaine and meth possession, plus making terroristic threats? He was accused of pulling a gun and threatening to kill an Uber driver.

Those felony charges were dismissed today and Nails instead pleaded guilty to a petty offense.

From USA Today:

Former Major League Baseball player Lenny Dykstra has pleaded guilty to a petty disorderly persons offense in connection with an argument with an Uber driver after a judge granted a motion to suppress evidence related to drugs allegedly found in Dykstra’s bags.

Dykstra also was sentenced to $125 in fines and ordered to have no contact with the Uber driver, either directly or indirectly, such as through social media.

“The fact that the charges are dropped is something that I’m very happy with,” Dykstra said after the court proceeding.


“We’re pleased, all felony charges dismissed,” Dykstra’s attorney David Bahuriak said. “It’s a great outcome.”

More on the Superior Court judge’s motion, after the jump:

In granting the motion to suppress the evidence, (Union County Superior Court Judge Lisa Miralles Walsh) said the drugs were found in bags and suitcases in the vehicle’s back seat and trunk. Dykstra had been removed from the vehicle by police and as such the bags did not pose a jeopardy to safety. She ruled the search of the bags was not justified and added the additional property is not subject to an inventory search.

Makes sense to me. She’s saying the cops didn’t have the right to search the bags since that didn’t have anything to do with the argument between Dykstra and the Uber driver.

So Lenny skates here, just a $125 fine, but he has to get his shit together. He’s got a separate legal issue that remains outstanding, that situation involving the illegal boarding he was allegedly running out of his Linden, NJ home.

  5. The “Maggio” character played by Sinatra keeps getting in trouble. The stockade guard “Fatso” Judson tells “Maggio” sooner or later you’ll screw up again and “Fatso” will be waiting for him. Lenny will be seeing “Fatso” one of days. In other words he got lucky this time.
