Dykstra’s Downward Spiral Continues, Appears Incoherent at Court

Jun 14, 2011, 8:26 AM EDT

Lenny Dykstra appeared in court yesterday and reports say he looked incoherent and out of sorts.

Lenny Dykstra, who is currently being held in the Los Angeles County Jail, pleaded not guilty to a slew of charges in court yesterday where a judge declared the former baseball player indigent.

From the Associated Press:

When U.S. Magistrate Judge John McDermott asked Dykstra if he understood
the charges, the ex-big leaguer gave an incoherent response.
“I don’t understand it, but I understand them,” said Dykstra, who appeared dazed.

They also say the Dude could face a maximum of 80 years in prison for the long list of 25 charges he faces.

Oh, and this: “Police who arrested Dykstra last month said they found cocaine, Ecstasy
and the synthetic human growth hormone Somatropin at his San Fernando
Valley home.”

Recreational drug use, I could see Lenny being into, but what on earth would Dykstra be doing with a human growth hormone?
