While Mets and Phillies fans recall Lenny Dykstra’s home runs, life since his MLB retirement hasn’t been ideal. Dykstra crashed a car while driving drunk; he was arrested for threatening an Uber driver while in possession of drugs, and he was accused of sexual assault and indecent exposure.
Furthermore, the now-57-year-old was involved in a grand theft auto case and a federal bankruptcy case. Dykstra has landed in jail more than once. He’s also been accused of stealing over $50,000 worth of jewelry from a porn star who was once involved with Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen.

A 13th-round pick in 1981, the left-hander played in the Mets’ minors for four-plus years. In 1986, as a member of the Mets, Dykstra earned a World Series ring. In 1989, he was traded to Philadelphia.
There, he made the National League All-Star team in 1990, 1994, and 1995. In 1993, he earned a Silver Slugger Award. During his 12 years in the majors, Dykstra earned a .285 batting average overall. He hit 81 home runs, had a total of 404 RBIs, and stole 285 bases, according to Baseball-Reference.

Actually, Dykstra’s problems and subsequent legal problems began shortly after being traded to the Phillies. In May 1991, Dykstra lost control of his car following a bachelor party for a teammate. He suffered a broken collarbone, three ribs, and a cheekbone, as well as a punctured lung. His blood-level was .178, as reported by NJ.com.
Some 11 years following Dykstra’s retirement from the game, he was named as one of several players found to have used steroids while playing. He showed little remorse and was quoted as saying “We’re talking about the difference of making $30 million or getting a real job and working and making $60,000. Do you want the guy next to you taking them and you’re not going to take them?”
Now at 27 consecutive months without being arrested.

The year 2011 was a bad year for Dykstra. His housekeeper accused him of sexual assault, although he was never prosecuted due to a lack of evidence. He was charged with exposing himself to women who answered a Craigslist ad which he ran looking for an assistant and housekeeper. He was charged and sentenced to nine months in jail for two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure.
