Former pro baseball player Lenny Dykstra’s housekeeper accused him of sexual assault, according to records, though prosecutors declined to file charges this month citing a lack of evidence.

According to the rejection memo by Los Angeles County prosecutors, a female housekeeper alleged Dykstra would force her to give him oral sex on Saturdays. However, the 41-year-old woman’s case seemed to flounder because of an apparent lack of evidence that the activity was forced.

The woman told investigators she "needed the job and the money so she went along with the suspect’s requests rather than lose her job," according to the filing, and "returned to work in the suspect’s home with knowledge that she obtained from the Internet of a claim of sexual assault by another woman."

According to prosecutors, the woman did not report the alleged assaults until after Dykstra failed to pay her $2,000 he owed her. Investigators found text messages from the woman to Dykstra demanding the money and asking for her job back.
