Dykstra is facing charges of possession of cocaine, possession of meth and making terroristic threats after allegedly threatening his Uber driver back in May, who then proceeded to drive the former Major League Baseball player to the Linden Police Department's headquarters at 3:30 am.

But, the grand jury clearly believes there's enough truth behind the Uber driver's story to move forward with charges against the 55-year-old. An attorney for Dykstra didn't immediately return a phone message Wednesday.

Each stems from the May incident Dykstra had with an Uber driver, during which he allegedly held a gun to the driver's head. The driver then drove to a police station, where the arrest was made.

Dykstra refused Lutty's claims and told the New York Daily News in May he was kidnapped by Lutty.

When he was arrested in May, police didn't find a weapon in Dykstra's possession, though they did claim that drugs were discovered.

Police say that when the officer searched Dykstra's bags, he allegedly found a pill bottle containing a leafy green substance suspected to be marijuana, a glass pipe with suspected marijuana residue and a yellow straw with suspected powder cocaine residue.

Since retiring in 1998, Dykstra has admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs, been indicted for bankruptcy fraud and sentenced to three years in prison after pleading no contest to three grand theft auto charges.
