Lenny Dykstra: Downward Spiral Continues, Is Lenny Dykstra the Victim or a Fool?
Lenny Dykstra Confined to House Arrest
Lenny Dykstra, the man known as "Nails" from his playing days made an appearance in federal court on Wednesday where he struck a new agreement to reduce his $150,000 bail to $105,000 and allows him to serve his house arrest at a friend's home in West Hollywood, per the New York Daily News.
Outside of court, Dykstra—who was indicted on bankruptcy fraud and facing embezzlement charges—still expressed disappointment in the court's decision to put him in house arrest instead of something worse like a halfway house.
Dykstra told the Daily News:
It's an egregious abuse of power. I have attempted to work with the trustee to pay the creditors, but they weren't interested...Everything I had was taken from me, ripped apart to line their pockets.
Clearly, the former World Series hero is trying to play it off like he's the guy that is being taken advantage here. But there's no such abuse taking place.
Dykstra is the product of his own greed and lack of business acumen. He's been accused of among other things, bouncing checks, not paying bills, credit card fraud, lying about his assets and most recently arrested on suspicion of trying to buy a stolen car by the L.A.P.D.
There's no one to blame here but Dykstra himself.
He's a living example for other athletes of how not to piss away their fortunes.
