For Len Dykstra, it pays to have friends in high places.

Emphasis on high. Charlie Sheen coughed up $22,500 to bail the former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder out of jail yesterday.

Charged earlier with bankruptcy fraud, Dykstra was held on $150,000 bail for nearly a week until 15 percent of the bond amount was put up.

It turns out Sheen was the one who did the honors.

Said Sheen of bailing out Lenny “Nails” Dykstra:

“The rendition guilty trolls that kidnapped my dear friend Nails clearly forgot that he’s a fellow Vatican assassin and his best pal is a warlock.”

Sheen and Dykstra are longtime friends. Len even hired a lawyer to negotiate the troubled actor’s return to Two and a Half Men this spring.

As we saw two weekends ago when Dog the Bounty Hunter bailed out Nic Cage, a friend in need of a five-figure bond post is a friend indeed.

 
Prosecutors claim that Dykstra, 48, sold $400,000 worth of items from his $18 million mansion in southern California without permission.

He faces up to five years in a federal prison if convicted.

As well as fraud charges, the former three-time All-Star was being investigated by the LAPD for lewd conduct after a woman claimed he stripped off and requested a massage when he interviewed her for a housekeeper role.

No wonder Sheen and Lenny are so close …
