LINDEN, N.J. (AP) Former baseball star Lenny Dykstra put a gun to the head of an Uber driver when the driver declined to change the trip's destination, police said the driver told them Wednesday.
Dykstra was arrested early Wednesday outside Linden police headquarters after the driver stopped and ran out of the car. Police said they found cocaine, MDMA and marijuana among Dykstra's belongings, but didn't find a weapon.
The 55-year-old former All-Star is charged with making terroristic threats and drug offenses. He's been given a summons, was released and is due in court next month. It wasn't immediately known if Dykstra has a lawyer.
