The L.A. County District Attorney is accusing Dykstra of committing 23 felonies and 2 misdemeanors. As TMZ first reported the alleged crimes include auto theft, identity theft, filing false financial statements ... and possession of controlled substances.

The D.A. says police found coke, Ecstasy, as well as Somatropin -- a synthetic human growth hormone -- in the former major leaguer's home while executing a search warrant on April 14.

Law enforcement sources tell us it was a small amount of coke and Ecstasy for "personal use" ... not distribution.

Dykstra's accountant and a friend were also charged -- and all three are scheduled to be arraigned later today. The D.A. will ask that bail be set at $500,000 for each party.

If found guilty of all charges ... Dykstra faces up to 12 years in state prison.

Aside from this arrest .. Dykstra is also under indictment for a federal bankruptcy fraud charge.

A sports possessing drugs?! Including a human growth hormone that helps people become better sports stsr?! NOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Say it ain't so!! LOL. As for the financial stuff, since they've got his accountant indicted too, he'll be taking the fall for the falsification of financials. As to the identity theft and bankruptcy fraud, he's hanging on his own there.

Anni - Just another Politician caught with his hand in the cookie jar. A Dem this time. D-NY, I believe.

The only thing in my mind that would convince me he really was hacked is it's difficult to fathom he is endowed that well. All he really had to say at the beginning was, "ya really think I'm hung like that?" Everybody would have laughed and it would have been the end of it.

So would Charlie say his friend is WINNING? I think not - both are loosers and Charlie is just a few steps behind Lenny.

Nails got caught losing millions in bets....also called the stock market. (If you think the market isn't just legalized gambling, you're fooling yourself.)
Unfortunately, he was too stupid to have liquid assets that he wouldn't touch unless he bottomed out.
Which he did.
And then all the illegal stuff started.
DUMMY!
