Default Re: Former baseball star Doc Gooden gets probation for DUI


Retired Mets All-Star Dwight 'Doc' Gooden Busted for Cocaine Possession in New Jersey, Felony Complaint Alleges
Published Jul 12, 2019 at 3:26 PM | Updated at 10:57 PM EDT on Jul 12, 2019

Retired Mets All-Star pitcher Dwight "Doc" Gooden faces drug charges after he was caught with suspected cocaine in New Jersey last month, according to a felony complaint obtained by News 4 Friday.

The 54-year-old four-time All-Star, who also had a pitching stint for the Yankees, among other Major League Baseball teams, allegedly had two small green plastic bags containing a white powder when he was stopped in Holmdel June 7.

Gooden also allegedly appeared to be under the influence of drugs, the complaint says. The former Rookie of the Year and Cy Young Award winner is expected to appear in court later this month in connection with the charges.

Information on his attorney wasn't immediately clear, but The New York Post reported he didn't immediately return their request for comment and his family declined comment.

The athletic superstar has a well-documented history of battling addiction. He ended up in rehab after a positive cocaine test in 1987, not long after the Mets clinched a World Series victory, was suspended for an entire season for failing a drug test eight years later and, in 2010, was arrested in Franklin Lakes for allegedly driving under the influence and crashing his car with his son in tow.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.

black sports: Former Mets ace Dwight Gooden arrested on cocaine possession charge in New Jersey
The Cy Young Award winner and two-time World Series champion has battled substance abuse issues for decades.

Former New York Mets great Dwight "Doc" Gooden, who has struggled with substance abuse for years, was arrested for alleged cocaine possession in New Jersey, authorities said Friday. The famed pitcher was picked up June 7 by police in Holmdel Township in New Jersey.

Gooden, 54, was pulled over by police who found “two, small green zip-lock style plastic baggies containing suspected cocaine,” according a criminal complaint written by Holmdel police Sgt. Michael Moore and filed by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office. Gooden was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence. He faces a maximum of five years behind bars, if convicted, prosecutors said.
