Dykstra is currently behind bars in L.A. after he was charged with 23 felonies earlier this month -- including possession of cocaine and ecstasy.

Lenny's team has been trying to convince the judge to lower Dykstra's bail in the hopes he can get out of jail and begin treatment ASAP ... but so far, the judge won't budge.

Sounds like he's using rehab as an excuse. If you commit a crime (intoxicated or not) you do the time. I'm sick of people using scapegoats to escape punishment for their crimes.

So sad. My daughter went to high school with his son and they were friends. Being that I was a single Mom struggling - it really has opened her eyes to how even with money - they struggle and things are not as they seem.

Pari******on and Lindsay Lohan were caught with cocaine and all they get is a slap on the hand. LA justice is not fair.Everyone there should be treated the same way. But I do hope he cleans up his act and gets it together.

Sure did take a big fall since the Phillies glory days, huh Lenny. Your first mistake was being friends with Charlie Sheen.
So go to rehab n get your life back together and stay away from idiots who do drugs and drink for a living.

Good for the judge - 23 felonies? He's lost many people who trusted him a bunch of money. He shouldn't be able to access drugs in jail and he can get off them that way. Tired of hearing about how people "make mistakes" and then expect to get off free by blaming drugs. Bad choices, bad people.
