Mets great Lenny Dykstra has been indicted on three charges Wednesday stemming from his incident with an Uber driver earlier this year.

Dykstra is facing charges of possession of cocaine, possession of meth and making terroristic threats after allegedly threatening his Uber driver back in May, who then proceeded to drive the former MLB player to the Linden Police Department's headquarters at 3:30 am. 

The cops found evidence of cocaine and meth on Dykstra, which led to his arrest.

If convicted, Dykstra could be facing 3-5 years in prison on each charge.

Dykstra's attorney, Matthew Blit, told TMZ Sports, "A grand jury will indict a ham sandwich. The evidence in this case overwhelmingly confirms Lenny is innocent."

Dykstra was a key member of the Mets' 1986 World Series team. He also played for the Philadelphia Phillies from 1989-1996.
