Former MLB pitcher Dwight Gooden was arrested in early June in New Jersey for possession of cocaine. He was pulled over in the early morning hours for driving too slowly on a highway.
Gooden was allegedly driving under the influence and two baggies containing what was suspected to be cocaine.
Via NY Post:
The retired pitcher, best known as “Doc,” was arrested June 7 by Holmdel police, who pulled him over just before 1 a.m. and allegedly found him with “two small green zip-lock style plastic baggies containing suspected cocaine,” according to a criminal complaint filed by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.
Gooden was pulled over for driving too slowly on a highway, failing to maintain the lane and for having overly tinted windows, which are illegal in the Garden State, prosecutor’s spokesman Christopher Swendeman said.
Gooden has struggled with drugs and alcohol his entire life. The former Mets and Yankees pitcher recently enjoyed a few years of sobriety, but that sadly appears to have ended.
