Charlie Sheen Bails Out Lenny Dykstra

4/26/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A friend in need is a friend indeed -- especially when that friend coughs up $22k to bail your ass out of jail ... which is what Charlie Sheen did for his good pal ... former baseball star Lenny Dykstra.

As we previously reported, Lenny -- who filed for bankruptcy back in 2009 -- was popped earlier this month for allegedly embezzling more than $400k from his bankrupt estate  ... a federal crime.

Lenny was held on $150,000 bail for nearly a week -- but it was Charlie to the rescue, by  fronting 15% -- $22,500.

It's only right Charlie helped out Lenny, because just after Sheen was given the boot from "Two and a Half Men" Lenny tried hiring a hot shot lawyer to negotiate Charlie's return.

Charlie tells TMZ, "The rendition guilty trolls that kidnapped my dear friend Nails clearly forgot that he's a fellow Vatican assassin and his best pal is a warlock."

Um, what he said.

Charlie needs to stop with his asinine way of talking and talk like he has some sense but I do have to give credit where credit is due. That was nice of him to bond Lenny out of jail. I hope he don't make the man join those stupid tours of his just because he bond him out of jail.

LMAO... only fitting that he bail Lenny out of jail, after all Lenny tried to do for Chuckie. Srsly, these people are all so tight, it's darn near incestuous. Still, glad to see that Chucie stands by the people that still try to help his sorry butt.

Too bad Chuckie is doomed to failure in the end. Most legal analysts don't give Chuckie a snowball's chance in h3ll of having the dispute with WB heard in open court - if he does work for WB again, he'll be lucky if his contract amounts to little more than indentured servitude this time around. And, before the Hoover twins gang up on me, let's just remember that the judge has yet to render his decision - I'm "just saying."

Atta boy. Helping a friend. Some of HIS "friends" could learn a thing or two from him.

@Jodi

Don't you see that he talks that way to certain people? When he talks to TMZ, he gives them what they expect from him , knowing full well that Harvey & his minions are gonna make a mountain out of every molehill he puts in front of them. When he goes for an interview to "normal" people, he doesn't shower them with that assassin crap all the time.

They should hook up with Lindsay Lohan and everybody else who's been kicked out of Hollywood Paradise and make their own show.

Sheen is getting stranger every day. And he can't even hold on to one of his "goddesses"--not really winning, Charlie. Losing.

@playmore.....Where does it say he got a bail bondsman? I'm sure Charlie had the money himself to bail him out. That would make it that he would get the money back when Lenny goes to court.

Even warlocks had died.

So nothing lasts forever, Mr. Estevez!!!

You are not Jackson. When you die, celebs will talk about you, media will write about you, but within a year, nobody but your ex wives, your kids, your brother, your father, your mother, your friends, will remember you.

Just because you are an actor, that does not mean you are a Legend. Albert Einstein was a legend, you are nothing but a train-wreck, and that is what you will always be.

Poor Charlie, not generating anymore press so he has to create some. He is old news and nobody is interested anymore so he has to call TMZ to announce his generocity.

Yeah, not even reporting how bad his shows are either. Funny how he is no longer badmouthing everyone. He's become old news very fast.
