Former New York Mets center fielder and Philadelphia Phillies, Lenny Dykstra, pleaded not guilty in a New Jersey court on Monday due to a drug-related incident and others for an incident in May in which the former All -Star, three times allegedly, threatened to shoot an Uber driver.

Dykstra, 55, faces charges of possession of cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as terrorist threats. The driver, Brian Lutty, allegedly told the police that Dykstra held a gun to his head, although no weapon was found.

After giving up a formal indictment at Monday's hearing in Union County, Dykstra and his lawyer spoke with reporters as they left the courtroom on Monday. In addition to denying the charges, Dykstra told reporters that he "could play in center field tonight."

"I am a man of the people," said Dykstra, adding, "We will let the process run on its own and the truth will come to light," Dykstra said.

"We are here in a courtroom now and the facts are revealed now, and now we have the opportunity to defend ourselves," Dykstra's lawyer, David S. Bahuriak, told reporters. & # 39; And once we take a look at the evidence, the evidence will not lie. You will find that Mr. Dykstra is actually innocent.

Dykstra then made a strange diatribe on Twitter, writing a series of publications on everything from the national day of the nut to several vulgar messages.

& # 39; #NobodyWantsToHear the blush after a lovely lady throws a bath in the bathroom of your house & # 39; wrote Dykstra shortly after leaving the courtroom.

He also cited the 1990s success of C & C Music Factory & # 39; Gonna Make You Sweat & # 39 ;: & # 39; It's your world and I'm just a squirrel trying to get a nut to move your butt to the dance floor & # 39; ;

On Sunday, Dykstra hinted at his next appearance in court: "Is there anything interesting going on in the hearing rooms of Elizabeth, NJ, during the next day?"

Recently Dykstra, who is known as & # 39; Nails & # 39;, began to tweet about the Torah.

& # 39; Part 2: My weekly discussion on the current reading of the Torah (chapters 12-17): Abraham, the first circumcision and "the covenant," Dykstra wrote on Friday.

The May incident began when Dykstra tried to change his destiny during a trip in Uber.

Dykstra told the police he feared for his life because the Uber driver would not stop the car. Bahuriak said the driver activated the child safety locks to prevent Dykstra from getting out of the car.

The driver, meanwhile, told authorities that Dykstra threatened to "blow up" his head. From there, the driver stopped outside Linden, at New Jersey Police Headquarters, and ran out of the car to get the police's attention, which eventually found cocaine, MDMA and marijuana in Dykstra's bag. , although no weapon was ever found.

The video from the camera of the police body shows Dykstra furious and, sometimes, charging the other driver.

He also denied being able to possess a weapon: "I am a condemned criminal, I can not have a firearm".

I have no weapon, friend. I want to get out of this guy's car, "Dykstra continued. & # 39; You're trying to kill me – this guy. He's crazy, "Dykstra tells the Lutty cops.

– Friend, I do not have a firearm. "There's no gun in my bag," says Dykstra, but when the cops want to register their bag, the big baseball becomes hesitant.

After telling the police that they were allowed to search her purse, Dykstra suddenly changed her mind and said, "No, I care."

The side of Dysktra's story, when police questioned him that night, was that he called an Uber to pick him up from his home in Linden and wanted him to take him to Staten Island.

"I told him to go to Staten Island," Dykstra said. "I did not have the address I was in Staten Island … he said:" I can not go anywhere if I do not have the address. "

The driver of Uber had accused him of pointing him out with a bag, when the police asked him why he did it, he replied that he had no idea why the driver would say that in the first place.

"I told him:" Take me home, I'll take me to another Uber "and he starts going crazy." He's driving 100 miles per hour, "Dykstra says." He kidnapped me. basically & # 39;

When the police put him in handcuffs, Dykstra surprised: "Why do you hold me so much? What are you doing? & # 39;

His post-game career has been hectic, to say the least. Dykstra has served a prison sentence for everything from bankruptcy fraud, car theft and money laundering. He also claimed in 2009 that he owed more than $ 31 million when filing for bankruptcy.

Over the years, Dykstra has masqueraded as a businessman, and even owns a high-end aircraft rental company, as well as a magazine called "Players Club", which was marketed among the Millionaire athletes

He even had a website titled & # 39; Nails Investments & # 39 ;, which is a reference to his nickname, & # 39; Nails & # 39 ;, which was also the title of his poorly received autobiography.

At the end of 2009, Dykstra was living out of his car.

In 2011, he pleaded guilty to federal fraud charges, admitting that he hid, sold or destroyed more than $ 400,000 in property that was supposed to be part of his bankruptcy filing.

He was also charged with possession of cocaine, ecstasy and human growth hormone (HGH) known as somatropin, and finally sentenced to three years in prison. However, he was given credit for one year.

In 1999, Dykstra was arrested for sexually harassing a 17-year-old girl, but charges were later dropped. He was also accused of using offensive terminology when he spoke of minorities and women that same year.

In 2010 he was accused of paying a prostitute with a bad check.

The following year, his housekeeper accused him of proposing oral sex. The woman obeyed, but as she told the authorities, it was only for fear of losing her job.
