Today, Lenny Dykstra pleaded no contest to three counts of felony grand theft auto and one count of submitting false statements to a financial institution stemming for allegedly leasing sweet rides with bogus paperwork. In return for said pleading, 21 other charges were dropped and Nails was ROR'd until his January sentencing.

Daniel Herman, Nails's business manager who sent nine miffed/bemused/joking emails about the Dykstra's driver/eBay-auction post from last weekend, just boasted that "Lenny didn't plead guilty to anything, got 21 out of 24 criminal counts dropped, he gets to go home. But don't call it a comeback, Brian. Lenny has been winning for years!! I say these things as his friend."


Says old driver Aaron Michael Plaat, "It's good to hear they're letting him out until January. I think this is going to give him breathing space and time to help resolve a few situations that were stopped short when he was jailed. Nails is a fighter and refuses to give up. I hope he will be able to turn this situation around and help show people that even the best of us can get hit with low blows."
