Linden, New Jersey police have released body camera footage from the most recent arrest of former Phillies and Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra last month.
Dykstra was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats after a strange incident with an Uber driver back in May. Dykstra was also charged with drug-related offenses as various illegal substances where found in his possession.
In the footage, Dykstra can be seen attempting to tell officers his side of the story, one in which he claims the Uber driver "kidnapped" him. He's visibly upset.
The police also shared body camera footage of the Uber driver from the same incident.
"He told me he was going to shoot me," the driver said to police.
Dykstra was a member of the 1993 Phillies team that was honored recently at Citizens Bank Park. He was not invited to that event "because the team believed his post-career scrapes with the law would have been a distraction," according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jim Salisbury.
Dykstra will have his day in court on July 18.
FOXBORO, Mass. — Eagles fans are still enjoying the first Super Bowl victory in franchise history. So they’re going to gloat a little bit.
Especially against the team they beat.
Since the Eagles are facing the Patriots in Thursday night's preseason game, it seemed like a good time for one fan to rub it in a little bit. So he hired a plane and told it to fly around Gillette Stadium for an hour in advance of the game.
The banner, of course, features the final score from Super Bowl LII: 41-33. The Eagles had their own fun with the score earlier in the day (see story).
For years, opposing fans would tell Eagles fans to let them know when their team finally won a Super Bowl. Now that the Eagles have actually done it, fans have let everyone know. Repeatedly.
Don’t expect Eagles fan to become quiet about it any time soon.

The Eagles have taken the chance to troll the Patriots one last time before they face the 2018 runner-ups. Amid the trash talk on social media from fans, the players have joined in and their troll level is simply unrivaled.
It’s clear that the champs are just as excited as you are to take the field against New England.
Here are some of the wonderful posts shared by your Super Bowl LII champions:
Jalen Mills and Stefen Wisniewski took the opportunity to point out that, despite their best attempts, the Patriots were unable to collect a sixth banner to hang at Gillette Stadium.
Malcolm Jenkins took some inspiration from Allen Iverson to share a photo of his step-over moment from the Super Bowl, when he hit Brandin Cooks.
Rodney McLeod also took to Twitter to celebrate his nope moment with Cooks, when he tried to unsuccessfully hurtle over McLeod.
You know Lane Johnson had to get in on the action, too.
It seems that the team is relishing taking one last jab at the 2018 losers before the new season begins. Who are we kidding, the Eagles will never stop trolling the Patriots and we wouldn’t want them to.
