And you thought YOU were having a crappy day at work!
The headline above speaks for itself. So wrong, yet ...
Former baseball all-star Lenny Dykstra was arrested last night after being targeted by federal agents for embezzling more than $400,000 ... from himself.
According to the U.S. Attorney in L.A. ... Lenny arrested by local authorities and later charged with one felony count of embezzling from a bankrupt estate.
Officials claim Dykstra, who filed for bankruptcy in 2009, "stole and destroyed more than $400,000 worth of property in the estate." That sounds illegal!
Who embezzles stuff from himself while under federal surveillance?
Dykstra is not legally allowed to sell off any of the items that make up the bankrupt estate. The property must only be used to pay off debts to creditors.
All transactions must be initiated by a court-appointed trustee. Needless to say, if law enforcement personnel are to be believed, that did not occur here.
According to the criminal complaint, Len loaded up a ton of his expensive personal items into a U-Haul truck and sold them to an L.A. consignment store.
Basically, he's shadier than Brooke Mueller at a pawn shop.
All-time home run leader Barry Bonds and his enormous head were convicted in a Los Angeles courtroom today of obstruction of justice, as it was determined he lied to a grand jury about using steroids and human growth hormone.
The former San Franciso Giants star revealed no emotion after the verdict, which followed four days of deliberation. The jury was deadlocked on a trio of other charges.
The case stemmed from a testimony Bonds gave in 2003, during which he denied knowledge of ever receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a Bay Area lab and claimed he had no idea that personal trainer Greg Anderson injected him with anything illegal.
Major League Baseball's Mitchell Report, however, listed over 100 names of individuals who had failed drugs tests. Bonds was among them.
Federal sentencing guidelines now recommend he serve 15 to 21 months in prison, but the disgraced slugger will likely be related to home confinement instead.

L.A. Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant appeared to use a homophobic slur while cursing out an NBA ref last night, and a gay rights group is justifiably livid.
In the third quarter of L.A.'s matchup with the Spurs, Kobe got a technical foul. Clearly upset, he appeared to call Bennie Adams a "F**king f**got."
The Lakers say they can't confirm what was said, but it looks obvious. An announcer even said, "You might wanna take the cameras off of him" ...
In the wake of this incident, the Human Rights Campaign called it "a disgrace for Kobe Bryant to use such horribly offensive and distasteful language."
Even worse, the group said in condemning Kobe - "a person with such fame and influence" - was that he did this with millions of people watching:
"Such language not only offends millions of LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] people around the world, but also perpetuates a culture of discrimination and hate that all of us, most notably Mr. Bryant, should be working to eradicate."
LeBron James' mom, Gloria James, was arrested for assault last week.
This you likely know by now if you keep up on your celeb gossip and/or NBA news. But what you haven't seen before now is RAW VIDEO of the incident!
Unlike the surveillance footage of Gloria ranting at the cops after she got popped, video of the actual attack casts her in a (slightly) more positive light.
During the encounter, the valet parking guy, Rockfeller Sorel, takes an advancing step towards Gloria and bumps her before the infamous slap occurred.
Gloria got in his face prior to that, but he may have provoked James to a degree too. He also takes aggressive steps at her post-slap. Watch below:
Brett Favre should have called it a career in 2009.
His final season was marred by injuries, on-field mediocrity and Jenn Sterger, a former New York Jets employee who reportedly received suggestive voicemails, sexual texts and totally unsolicited pictures of Brett Favre naked.
Now Jenn Sterger is ready to tell her side of the story.
This week, Sterger is opening up publicly for the first time, six months after news of Favre’s alleged inappropriate behavior became an Internet scandal.
“I just want my life back,” she tells George Stephanopoulos in a Good Morning America interview to air today and tomorrow. “That’s all I’m asking for.”
In a sense, Sterger’s sit-down with a news outlet was as inevitable as a costly, forced Favre INT (we went there). But why now, when this is all over?
Gloria James, mother of NBA superstar LeBron James, was arrested for assault last week after an altercation with a valet parking guy, Rockefeller Sorel.
The police who busted her weren't treated much better, according to the surveillance tape, obtained by WPLG in Miami, where the arrest went down.
Video shows Gloria James held in a holding room at the Miami Beach police HQ. LeBron's mom yells at cops, who at one point had to wipe her face.
She also tried to break free of her handcuffs. Spoiler alert: Fail.
In the life of every champion ... There comes a moment of truth ... Heroes will rise ... Stars will fall.
Showing that there is no limitation on greatness, Justin Bieber is branching out from singing sensation to soccer star in a new faux sports documentary.
The teen heart throb and burgeoning soccer great posted this Twitter video, titled “career change” and “The Next Pele Lol JK.” Dude has SICK moves!

The valet who claims he was slapped in the face by LeBron James' mom Gloria James says he is just too traumatized by the experience to resume working.
Parking cars at the Fountainbleau Hotel in Miami Beach can be tough when you're experiencing what is TOTALLY a severe case of PTSD like he is, for sure.
Sources close to Rockfeller Sorel say he's taken an extended leave of absence and has been "very depressed" since Gloria James clocked him in the face.
LeBROMMA DRAMA: Gloria James was arrested early Thursday a.m.
Gloria, 43, was arrested over the incident - after which Sorel sought medical attention but showed minor, if any visible injuries - and charged with assault.
She was a big pain with the police as well, reports indicate.
Rockfeller Sorel will meet with his lawyer Monday to discuss his legal options, which is a nice way of saying he will be filing a GIANT ASS LAWSUIT shortly.
Peyton Manning and his beautiful wife, Ashley Manning, just became the proud new parents of twins - a boy and a girl - according to reports!
The 35-year-old quarterback welcomed son Marshall Williams Manning and daughter Mosley Thompson Manning on March 31 in Indianapolis.
The pair kept the pregnancy under wraps, as both are extremely private, but a source confirms: “It is true, and it is very happy news for them.”
The newborn twins are the Mannings' first children.
Peyton's younger brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, and his wife Abby welcomed a daughter, Ava Frances Manning, just 10 days earlier.
The elder Manning, a surefire Hall-of-Famer, has dominated the NFL gridiron for more than a decade. He's been married to Ashley for over 10 years, too.
Congratulations to the happy family, and we eagerly await Marshall's first start at Tennessee in the fall of 2029, with his NFL debut set for around 2033.
