ESPN: Lenny Dykstra Sues Los Angeles County Over Alleged Jail Beating

Former All-Star outfielder Lenny Dykstra filed a lawsuit Wednesday saying he suffered an unprovoked and brutal beating by deputies in a Los Angeles County jail two years ago. Dykstra filed the suit seeking unspecified damages against the county and several Sheriff’s Department employees, saying his head was slammed against the wall, his teeth were knocked out and he was kicked and beaten until he was “barely breathing.”
. . .
But when the beating allegations arose at Dykstra’s fraud sentencing in December 2012, sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said there had been a fight involving the former ballplayer and some deputies in April. Dykstra was the aggressor and had to be physically restrained, Whitmore said.

Quite an ending after earning more than $36M from MLB, plus all that he stole.

I'm torn. On one hand, legitimate police brutality happens, and is never OK.

On the other hand, Lenny Dykstra.

I would have paid good money to witness that.

I'd pay ashtray money to see that.

I bet Lenny looks better afterwards.

If the 1980 clubhouse reports about who was truly the Mets' biggest star can be believed, Lenny should have just clubbed all of his assailants into submission with his penis.

Gee, I hope the beating doesn't make him slur his speech unintelligibly.

Was he whipped with his own licorice?
