I used to be a fan of Lenny Dykstra when he played for the Phillies but once he left I didn’t follow him much. From what I understand he’s had his fair share of controversy since then. I think this one tops them all.
Dykstra is accused of exposing himself in his Los Angeles home to several women that he allegedly met on craigslist. It wasn’t any of the usual dark corners of craigslist where Dykstra placed the ad. according to police Dykstra placed an ad on craigslist looking for a housekeeper/personal assistant. Dykstra allegedly told the women that the job would entail massages at which point Dykstra is alleged to have exposed himself. This is one step above the guys who pretend they need their diapers changed.
What’s a matter, Lenny? Are you that broke that you can’t find yourself a gold digger?
It just goes to show even if you’re semi-famous you can still be a craigslist creep.
UPDATE 9/8/2011: Dykstra has pleaded not guilty and is looking at a year in county.
UPDATE 4/19/2012: Lenny got nine months in jail and three years probation after pleading no contest. During his probation, he’ll be banned from using any social sites including craigslist.
