Ex-MLB star Dykstra indicted on drug, terroristic threat charges

Dykstra is facing charges of possession of cocaine, possession of meth and making terroristic threats after allegedly threatening his Uber driver back in May, who then proceeded to drive the former Major League Baseball player to the Linden Police Department's headquarters at 3:30 am.

The driver told a different story.

The indictment handed up Tuesday stems from an altercation in May between Dykstra and an Uber driver that resulted in Dykstra's arrest.

Dykstra faces an arraignment on a date to be determined.

In August, Dykstra, through his attorney Michael Brucki, rejected an offer on the terroristic threats charge that would have kept him out of prison.

Dykstra played 12 seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets and was part of the Mets' 1986 championship team. Dykstra is charged with 25 counts, including grand theft auto and possession of a controlled substance.

TMZ Sports obtained police body cam video from the arrest - in which Dykstra tells the cop he does NOT have a gun in his possession (as originally claimed by the Uber driver). Lutty instead drove Dykstra to the Linden (N.J.) police headquarters.

Lutty told police Dykstra held a weapon to his head, but no weapon was found in the vehicle when Dykstra was arrested.

An officer patted down Dykstra, who claimed he had no gun and that the driver had kidnapped him. Each charge carries a penalty of 3-5 years in prison. He has two previous convictions, including a federal fraud conviction.
