Former MLB star Lenny Dykstra was just formally charged with multiple felonies this afternoon. We're talking 23 felony offenses for those keeping score.
The L.A. County D.A. is accusing Dykstra of auto theft, identity theft, filing false financial statements, possession of cocaine and Ecstasy, and so on.
The D.A. says police found coke, Ecstasy, as well as Somatropin - a synthetic human growth hormone - in the former ballplayer's home April 14.
Law enforcement sources report that it was a small amount of coke and Ecstasy for "personal use," not distribution. Phew, he's totally off the hook!
Charlie Sheen bailed him out after he was arrested following the search of his home. The Warlock may get another change to help out his friend.
Dykstra's accountant and a friend were also charged. All are set to be arraigned today, with the D.A. asking for bail set at $500,000 for each party.
If found guilty of all charges ... Dykstra faces up to 12 years in state prison. Oh, and he's ALSO under indictment for federal bankruptcy fraud.
That's from an entirely different, federal case. Just FYI.
