ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) — A grand jury in New Jersey has indicted former baseball star Lenny Dykstra on drug and other charges.

The indictment handed up Tuesday stems from an altercation in May between Dykstra and an Uber driver that resulted in Dykstra's arrest.

Dykstra faces charges of each of cocaine and methamphetamine possession, as well as making terroristic threats.

The three-time All-Star has claimed the driver threatened him after Dykstra changed the trip's destination.

The driver allegedly told police Dykstra held a gun to his head, though no weapon was found.

Dykstra faces an arraignment on a date to be determined. An attorney for Dykstra didn't immediately return a phone message Wednesday.

Dykstra played 12 seasons with the Phillies and Mets and was a member of the Mets' 1986 championship team.
