I agree with you Puckett. I loved Lenny for years now, and will not accept this without proof.

The whole intact vehicle? This sounds suspicious!! Cars that are stolen are usually chopped for parts because of that whole VIN number in three places issue that can lead to problems if you're caught when the car.

mack, you're right, but you've got it wrong in this case. Lenny repeatedly conned different car dealers into "deals" where they'd wind up getting stiffed. Same M.O. every time. He went through Mayback, Rolls Royce (as reported by TMZ), all of the luxury car dealers. He probably wound up at the Hyundai dealership toward the end, since he'd burned all the others. Every car was eventually found - he'd hide them for months - and reposessed. I guess someone finally pressed charges. He also had an assistant drive him to a dealership and while she was waiting in the lobby, he tried to use her car as a trade in without telling her. Nice.

Hey, TMZ, post the mugshot so I can make it into a nice t-shirt to remind me of my former boss, who stole my credit card and so many others. I'll smile and sleep like a baby every time I wear my "Lenny Dykstra is someone's b*%&tch now" t-shirt to bed. Knowing that this miserable shmuck isn't going to be able to victimize people anymore has made my day.
