Do not go gently into that good night: Lenny Dykstra caught vandalizing and stripping his foreclosed mansion

We covered the fall and fall of baseball-player-turned-options-trading-adviser Lenny Dykstra here.

The latest update is that he's been caught stripping fixtures out of his foreclosed house, the former Wayne Gretzky mansion:
Lake Sherwood security guards have been ordered to keep former baseball star Lenny Dykstra or anyone representing him away from his two estates in the exclusive gated community.

In a letter dated Sept. 11, a court-appointed trustee overseeing Dykstra’s bankruptcy proceedings issued the edict, saying: “It has come to our attention that the properties ... are being vandalized.”

Dykstra owns two multimillion dollar homes at Lake Sherwood, one formerly owned by hockey legend Wayne Gretzky.

He allegedly went to the property and removed lighting fixtures, wood flooring and a La Cornue oven and cook top — which the Gretzkys installed for $51,750 — according to a bankruptcy court filing. Dykstra could not be reached for comment, but according to the New York Daily News he acknowledged removing some items, but denied selling them.
