    Doc Gooden Arrested For DUI With Child In Car
    Former Met And Yankee Ace Crashes Car While Under Influence Of Drugs; Police Say He Was Accompanied By Child
    NEW JERSEY (CBS) ―
    Former New York Met and Yankee pitcher Dwight Gooden was arrested in New Jersey Tuesday for crashing his car while under the influence of drugs with a kid traveling as a passenger, police said.

    Franklin Lakes police Capt. Joseph Seltenrich said the former star pitcher crashed his car on Old Mill Road around 8:50 a.m. It wasn't clear whose child it was.

    Police arrested the 45-year-old Gooden after an on-scene investigation.

    Gooden, of Franklin Lakes, NJ, was charged with driving under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance, endangering the welfare of a child, driving while under the influence of drugs, DWI with a child passenger, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, reckless driving, failure to keep right and failure to notify change of address regarding driver's license.

    Gooden was released on his own recognizance.

    They didn't say what drugs they believe Gooden was on.

    He has waged a well-publicized battle with alcohol and drugs, including cocaine.

    Stay tuned to CBS 2 and WCBSTV.com for more on this developing story.

    I think Doc Gooden is majorly messed up and needs to go to jail. He had this same issue while playing baseball and after he retired. Now it is many years later and he is still on drugs and endangering lives. He needs to make some serious life changes and I don't think that will happen by giving him probation or some fine. I loved watching him play baseball, he was a great pitcher, but drugs messed up his career and lefe.
