Report: Lenny Dykstra seeks $15M for brain damage

According to TMZ, the former Phillie claims a sheriff's deputy whistled 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' while beating him.

FORMER PHILLIE Lenny Dykstra is filing another lawsuit.

This time, according to TMZ, he's claiming suffered brain damage when he was allegedly beaten by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies while serving time for grand theft auto.

Lenny's asking for a cool $15 million.

Dykstra claims that in April 2012, six sheriff's deputies slammed his head against the wall and broke several of his teeth.

A sheriff's spokesman is on record as saying officers had to restrain Dykstra after he became aggressive.

"Nails" filed a lawsuit against the county sheriff's department two years later, but there are no reports on how it turned out.

This time, according to TMZ, Dykstra claims that one of the deputies whistled "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" while beating him.

TMZ reported that, according to court documents, Dykstra fears "his head is not entirely well."
