Lenny Dykstra indecent-exposure charges tied to Craigslist ads
The L.A. City Attorney's office on Thursday charged Dykstra with two counts of indecent exposure involving those housekeeping ads.
Dykstra, 48, allegedly told them the job required them to give massages and then exposed himself, the Los Angeles City Attorney's office said in a statement.
The charges stemmed from alleged incidents between 2009 and April, according to the City Attorney's office. Dykstra is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 7 in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Raised in Garden Grove, Dykstra played center field and helped the New York Mets win the 1986 World Series.
In June, he was charged by Los Angeles County prosecutors with nearly two dozen felony counts connected to a scheme to get luxury cars and possession of cocaine, human growth hormone and Ecstasy.
The charges came a month after Dykstra was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of bankruptcy fraud and obstruction of justice in connection with the alleged hiding of more than $40,000 in property that should have gone to his creditors, authorities said.
The New Yorker magazine once dubbed Dykstra "baseball's most improbable post-career success story."
