Dykstra Nailed On 23 Count Indictment

Lenny Dykstra was charged with 23 felony counts, the LA District Attorney's office announced including attempted grand theft auto and filing false financial statements for trying to lease cars with phony information. He has also been charged with drug possession since, apparently they found coke, ecstasy, and HgH in an April arrest in California.

Two other men, 27-year-old Robert Hymers and 30-year-old Christopher Gavanis, are charged in the auto fraud case along with Dykstra.

Dykstra also has a federal bankruptcy charge hanging over his head with claimed assets in the tens of thousands of dollars with liabilities in the tens of millions.

According to the D.A., Dykstra and the two others tried to lease expensive cars from different dealerships in Los Angeles by allegedly "providing fraudulent information and claiming credit through a phony business."

If convicted, Dykstra faces up to 12 years in state prison.Here's one of our favorite pieces that show what Dykstra has become today...
