Dykstra Struggles To Raise Bail Money After Arrest On Fraud Charges

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A former Major League All-Star may have major trouble posting bail at the Los Angeles County jail.

The attorney defending Lenny Dykstra after his indictment on felony fraud and other charges plans to ask a judge to reduce his bail amount of $500,000.

KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports attorney Andy Flier plans to ask for a substantial reduction at a bail hearing on Friday.

Dykstra will also have to prove the funds are coming from legitimate sources.

“The money being clean, I think that’s going to be the easier issue, because he has a lot of friends in the community,” said Flier.

There are reportedly plans for a possible fundraiser being held to raise enough money to get Dykstra out of jail.

Dykstra is facing felony fraud, theft, and drug charges.

Prosecutors allege he used fake financial documents in an effort to lease high-end cars from several dealerships around Los Angeles County.

“He adamantly denies that he did any wrongdoing on this particular issue,” said Flier.

    Well, perhaps if Mr. Dykstra had paid his Latina maid the $2,500.00 he owed her for housekeeping services rather than forcing her to perform oral copulation on him to keep her job (sadly, her case was dismissed), she might have been able to lend him some cash to make bail. Karma is real, Mr. Dykstra and you’re cleaning her toilet…starting now.

    Definite flight risk no matter how much is put up. Anyone posting funds may as well flush it down the drain
