Life pretty much sucks for Lenny Dykstra, the former New York Mets star, who finds himself in trouble again as he was charged today in Los Angeles with two counts of indecent exposure. The 49-year-old has been jailed since June, with a slew of charges against him, grand theft auto (three counts), attempted grand theft auto (five counts), filing false financial statements (eight counts), identity theft (four counts) and possession of a controlled substance (three counts). He plead not guilty to these charges.
According to Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan, the new charges brought forth against the former MLB star hold Dykstra responsible for allegedly…
“…Placing ads on Craigslist requesting a personal assistant or housekeeping services. The victims allege when they arrive, they were informed that the job also requires massage service and then he (Dykstra) would disrobe and he would expose himself.”
The incidents allegedly occurred in 2009 through just this past April, exposing himself to six women. One woman told the NY Daily News that she responded to the ad and claimed Dykstra took her to a guesthouse where he stripped off his clothes, handed her a container of massage oils and hopped onto the bed. He allegedly told her that as an athlete he had sustained several injuries and massages would be required as part of the ‘job’. Poor lady hightailed it right outta there in no time flat. Of that incident, Dykstra said, “Total garbage – never happened.” Lawd, what is wrong with this man?
In a separate incident, Dykstra was indicted in May on thirteen counts of selling some of his wares ‘under the table’ after he had already declared bankruptcy. If he is convicted in this case, it could be up to 80 years in the slammer for the former World Series hero.
He is due in court September 7th.
