Mets great Lenny Dykstra, 55, was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly put a gun to the head of an Uber driver. 

It was reported that the Uber driver drove Dykstra to the Linden Police Department's headquarters around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday after the two had a disagreement regarding Dykstra's request to update the destination of the scheduled ride. Upon arriving police found cocaine, MDMA (Ecstasy/Molly) and marijuana among Dykstra's belongings.

The cops said that no weapon was recovered, but Dykstra, also known as "Nails," has been charged with drug offenses and making terroristic threats.

He was released on a summons and is due in court next month.

Dykstra has been very active on Twitter Wednesday, however, he hasn't mentioned anything about the arrest.

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