Baseball legend Lenny Dykstra will be charged Monday with two dozen state fraud, drug and auto-theft allegations. He is already facing federal fraud allegations.

The cases were described Monday on The Times' L.A. Now blog:

He was arrested in April by the Los Angeles Police Department's commercial crimes division on grand theft charges related to the purchase of vehicles through fraudulent means.

He was charged the same month with federal bankruptcy fraud for allegedly selling pieces of his estate, said officials with the U.S. Department of Justice.
