Dwight Gooden arrested for cocaine possession in New Jersey

Dwight Gooden

Yankees manager Aaron Boone was midway through his pre-game news conference Friday when a question was thrown his way about retired superstar pitcher Dwight Gooden's latest drug-related arrested.

Two plastic baggies allegedly containing cocaine were found in the 54-year-old Gooden's vehicle.

Gooden, 54, was arrested early in the morning on June 7 after he was pulled over by Holmdel Police Department and officers discovered "two, small green zip-lock style plastic baggies containing suspected cocaine", according to the complaint, which was obtained by NJ Advance Media.

Gooden, also known as "Doc", was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled unsafe substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and being under the influence at the time, according to the complaint. He was also ticketed for driving under the influence.

He was suspended from baseball for part of the 1994 season and all of the 1995 season after testing positive for cocaine. Then in 2010, he was arrested in Franklin Lakes, NJ after crashing his vehicle while driving his five-year old son to school.

On social media, South Africans sports icons like Herschelle Gibbs, Ryk Neethling and Kobus Wiese paid their respects to Small. Small was the first South African to be sent off in a test following his dismissal against Australia in 1993.

Gooden told ESPN in 2011 that he missed the Mets' 1986 World Series parade because he was getting high. It was determined that he had been driving under the influence.

His most successful seasons resulted in the 1984 National League Rookie of the Year Award and the 1985 National League Cy Young Award with the Mets. "I think he's a beloved figure in our game and uniquely in this town with the Mets and here with the Yankees". He went on to play for the Yankees for two seasons and pitched a no-hitter in 1996 before winning his second World Series title that season.

The uncle of retired Major League slugger Gary Sheffield, Gooden retired with a 194-112 record and a 3.51 earned-run average over his 16 Major League seasons. Drug addiction is a disease that is sometimes hard to fight.
