LOS ANGELES (KNX1070) — Former Major League outfielder Lenny Dykstra is seeking donations to help him make bail.

Through a Web site, friends, family and fans are being urged to help him raise $50,000 to pay a bail bond agent.

“If the money comes from a legitimate source, I don’t have any complaints about it,” Prosecutor Alex Karkanen told KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta.

Karkanen says this is the first time he’s heard of a defendant using a Web site to come up with bail money.

“Everybody pretty much by now knows he has been accused of fraud, frauding various parties including his friends and his family and if people want to give money knowing that, that’s up to them,” he added.

The 48-year-old, who has been behind bars for more than three weeks, has pleaded not guilty fraud, theft and other charges.

His bail remains at $500,000.

    With all the money you had while playing MLB, and you want people who have to work REAL jobs trying to put food on their tables, pay rent/mortgage, utilities, etc to come to your aid? You’re a looser and deserve your fate.

    Maybe next time you won’t turn to crime you filthy piece of excrement!

    LOSER! These sports celebrities make more money than most people do in a lifetime. When they mismange and loose all they have, they want everyone to feel sorry for them. He’s not an embarrassment to MLB, he is just an embarrassment himself. He’s an idiot!

    He got to be joking!!! I have been unemployed for a long time, looking everyday for odd jobs to make ends meet, on top of that I still owe taxes from 2010, and has never crossed my mind to ask for donations, never made a lot of money like that guy did. I wonder if the ones who will come up with the money will be same kind of people like himself.
