    Dwight Gooden arrested for cocaine possession in New Jersey


    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.

    He was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia and being under the influence at the time, the complaint obtained by The Post on Friday shows.

    The arrest is the latest in the athlete’s lengthy public battle with cocaine addiction, which overshadowed his storied sports career.

    The star righty, now 54, was sent to rehab after testing positive for cocaine in 1987, months after the Mets won the World Series.

    In 1995, he was suspended for the entire season for failing yet another drug test.

    Gooden was arrested in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, after crashing his car while under the influence of drugs in 2010. He was driving his 5-year-old son, Dylan, to school at the time.

    He probably appeared before the same judge that sent Artie to rehab for the umpteenth time.
