Former NY Met bad boy Lenny Dykstra spent nine hours in a Dumpster on the night before Father’s Day looking for his dentures.
The former All Star player was eating at a Mike’s sub shop in Linden, New Jersey on Saturday.
“The bread is so hard on those subs. I took my teeth out and put them in a napkin, folded it up and forget them there,” Dykstra told NJ.com
Dykstra says the dentures were made with bone marrow and cost $80,000.
“When I went back, the workers said they threw all the napkins in the garbage. I told them there was no f—- way I was leaving without my f—- teeth,” Dykstra continued.
“I was there for nine hours. I thought the cops were going to arrest me for trespassing. I wasn’t leaving my teeth there in the dumpster. No way was I leaving them,” he concluded.
Lenny got his $80K choppers.
Dykstra lost his teeth “after jail guards in Los Angeles beat him in his cell”, according to his autobiography.
