Gooden arrested in N.J. on DWI charges

The Associated PressNEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Former New York Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden was arrested again in New Jersey on Monday, this time on charges of driving while intoxicated.

Gooden was pulled over after driving the wrong way down a one-way road, Newark police said. It was the second time he has been arrested in as many months.

Gooden, 54, was charged with drug possession charges after two plastic baggies allegedly containing cocaine were found in his car during a traffic stop in Holmdel last month.

In a text message to Newsday on Tuesday, Gooden thanked everyone for their support “in this horrible struggle.”
