Former Mets pitcher Dwight "Doc" Gooden has been arrested once again for driving under the influence on Monday night, reports The Post.
Just a month after being arrested for cocaine possession, Gooden was pulled over after driving the wrong way on a one-way street in Newark, NJ. Cops said he was a mess and he had to be taken to University Hospital in Newark.
Gooden was arrested back on June 7 and charged with third-degree possession of a controlled substance as well as possession of drug paraphernalia, according to The Post.
Doc has been battling substance abuse issues since 1986. He missed the Mets' World Championship parade because of his drug use, as well as the start of the 1987 season to battle his addiction. He has since been in and out of rehab.
Gooden spent 11 years with the Mets, accumulating four All-Star nods in that span. He was a Cy Young award winner in 1985 after his dominant season that saw a 1.53 ERA over 35 starts. He was also a key starter during the Mets' '86 World Series run. His career would end in 2000 after stops with the Yankees, Indians, and Astros.
