According to police, the disgraced slugger allegedly put a weapon to the driver's head because he would not agree to update the ride's destination. Upon arriving on the scene, police said they could not locate a weapon, but found cocaine, MDMA, and marijuana on Dykstra.
This isn't Dykstra's first—or fifth—run-in with the law. Most recently, he was arrested in 2012 and sentenced to three years in prison for Grand Theft Auto, after cops alleged that he and two others "leased a Ford Flex, a Lincoln and a Ford Mustang using fraudulent information tied to identity theft and a fake start-up company." In that case, police found cocaine, ecstasy and human growth hormone in Dykstra's home.
Prior to that, as he faced bankruptcy fraud charges, Dykstra penned a column in the Post, writing, "I told them, 'If you are trying to kill me, then you better put a bullet in my head because I am not backing down. Torture me all you want, I am stronger than you will ever know.'"
On Wednesday, Dykstra was charged with drug offenses and for making terroristic threats. He has since been released, and has returned to Twitter.
