Lenny Dykstra – who told him he was smart?

Dykstra

“Lenny Dykstra, a three-time major league All-Star outfielder who played for the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies, was charged Monday with multiple counts of allegedly leasing cars using phony businesses and credit information, and with drug possession, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office announced.” (source: cnn.com)

Getting a co-sign by Charlie Sheen as the ultimate warlock was clearly a sign of things to come for Dykstra, who was recently caught with drugs and is facing charges (again) for shady business tactics.

Lenny Dykstra timeline:

1998 – Officially retired from Major League Baseball.  Starts a car wash around the same time.

2005 – Gets sued in relation to the car wash.

July 2009 – Files for bankruptcy

October 2009 – Auctions off world series championship ring to help pay off $31 million debt.

April 2011 – Arrested and charged with bankruptcy fraud.

June 2011 – Dykstra is charged with multiple counts of allegedly leasing cars using phony businesses and credit information.

 

These are just a few incidents in a laundry list of bad moments for Lenny Dykstra.   And to think, at one point people were calling Dykstra a financial guru.
