Cops also released body cam footage of the Uber driver -- who gave his side of the story ... saying LD threatened to shoot him.
A gun was never recovered.
Lenny is facing multiple charges from the alleged incident.
12:00 PM PT -- Lenny's attorney, Matthew Blit, tells TMZ ... "The video footage confirms that Lenny was the victim, not the driver."
"Instead of letting Lenny out of the car, the driver confirms on camera that he falsely imprisoned Lenny by engaging the child locks."
"Even if Lenny did threaten the driver, which he did not, he had every right to do so as he was being falsely imprisoned by a speeding and reckless driver that Lenny thought was going to kill him in an accident."
