Lenny Dykstra cleared of charge he threatened to kill N.J. Uber driver, admits to minor offense

Charges that Lenny Dykstra threatened to kill an Uber driver in a wild, late-night ride that ended at a police headquarters in New Jersey last year were dropped Friday after the former baseball great agreed to plead guilty to disorderly conduct.

Superior Court Judge Lisa Miralles Walsh reduced a charge of third-degree terroristic threats to a petty disorderly persons offense and dropped drug possession charges during a hearing in Union County.

Dykstra ‘s attorney, David Bahuriak, had argued a Linden police search of Dykstra’s belongings was improper and that there were no witnesses who could say Dykstra threatened the driver.

No matter how bad things get for Lenny, at least he can always look back to a decade ago, when he proved several folk to be fools….
