Lenny Dykstra is dishing untold secrets in his explosive new memoir, House of Nails: A Memoir of Life on the Edge, including never-before-seen details of his ruthless jail beating back in 2012.
San Francisco Giants v Philadelphia Phillies
The former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies all-star, nicknamed "Nails," was sentenced to three years in a California state prison in 2012 after pleading no contest to grand theft auto and providing a false financial statement.
But while in prison, Dykstra was nearly beaten to death.
In 2014, the 1986 World Series champ filed a lawsuit against several Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department employees, claiming he was "slammed against the wall, his teeth were knocked out and he was kicked and beaten until he was 'barely breathing.'"
Video footage reveals the bruises he received from allegedly being thrashed around by his handcuffs.
Dykstra also lost his teeth thanks to the incident, visiting a dentist in recent months about getting a brand new grill.
The ex-MLB star sported severely swollen knuckles as well.
Dykstra sought a cool $15 million in damages.
