Former New York Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden has been charged with drug possession in New Jersey after a traffic stop last month. After being pulled over for driving too slowly, Gooden was found with 'two small green zip-lock style plastic baggies containing suspected cocaine'.

Gooden, also known as "Doc", was charged with third-degree possession of a controlled risky substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and being under the influence at the time, according to the complaint. Authorities say he was under the influence at time of arrest and was also ticketed for several motor vehicles offenses.

The 1985 Cy Young Award victor has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction over the years. Major League Baseball suspended the right-hander for the entire 1995 season after another positive test. Then in 2010, he was arrested in Franklin Lakes, NJ after crashing his auto while driving his five-year old son to school.

He also served eight months in jail for violating his probation when he showed up high on cocaine to a meeting with his probation officer in 2006. It was determined that he had been driving under the influence.

Although he won the National League's Rookie of the Year award as a 19-year-old in 1984, Gooden's best season came the following year when he led the league in wins (24), earned-run average (1.53), strikeouts, (268) complete games (16), and innings pitched (276.2).

Yankees manager Aaron Boone called Gooden "a beloved figure in our game and uniquely in this town with the Mets and here with the Yankees".

Gooden signed with the Yankees in June of 2000 and went on to win the World Series with NY that season.

Gooden spent time with the Indians, Astros and Devil Rays before returning to the Yankees in 2000 to win a third championship.

All of us here at MMO hope for the best for the former Mets superstar.
