  • Stop us if you've heard this before... Lenny Dykstra's got problems

Former New York Met Lenny Dykstra is facing prison time over drug possession discovered after he allegedly threatened an Uber driver.

As we previously reported, Dykstra was arrested back in May after allegedly threatening his Uber driver - who then stopped the auto in front of a police station. He allegedly told police Dykstra held a gun to his head, though no weapon was found. Police said they found the drugs among Dykstra's possessions.

Former Major League baseball player Lenny Dykstra appears in Los Angeles Superior Court for an arraignment in San Fernando, California August 8, 2011.

In August, Dykstra, through his attorney Michael Brucki, rejected an offer on the terroristic threats charge that would have kept him out of prison.

Dykstra played 12 seasons with the Phillies and Mets and was a member of the Mets' 1986 championship team.

Croatia v England: Gareth Southgate on 'strange' experience at HNK Rijeka Stadium
Croatia were punished after a swastika was marked on their pitch before a Euro 2016 home qualifier against Italy. The youngster impressed for Gareth Southgate's side last month, scoring in games against Spain and Switzerland.

"The guy went nuclear on me", said Dykstra.

But, the grand jury clearly believes there's enough truth behind the Uber driver's story to move forward with charges against the 55-year-old.

An officer patted down Dykstra, who claimed he had no gun and that the driver had kidnapped him.

The former World Series victor could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted, in part because he already has a federal conviction for fraud and another prior conviction.
