Dwight Gooden to face several charges

The ex-Yank Dwight Gooden is in trouble again.

Dwight Gooden, the former pitching star who has battled drug and alcohol problems, was arrested Tuesday and faces several charges, including driving while under the influence of drugs, after an accident in Franklin Lakes, N.J.

“Doc” Gooden was mainly a Met, but pitched for the Yankees in 1996, 1997 and 2000. Gooden pitched a no-hitter in ‘96, but didn’t pitch in the postseason that year. Injuries plagued the last few years of his career, and he’s been in trouble with the law multiple times ever since.
