    Dwight Gooden arrested for using cocaine again.

    Such a shame. By all accounts, Gooden is a great guy who does lots of charity work and volunteering, and is still beloved by Mets and Yankees fans. He was one of my favorite players growing up. Hopefully he can finally beat this disease.

    ESPN -- Former major league pitcher Dwight "Doc" Gooden was arrested on suspicion of possession of cocaine, according to the Monmouth County, New Jersey Prosecutor's Office.

    Police say Gooden, 54, had two small plastic baggies containing suspected cocaine in his possession when he was stopped for a traffic violation last month in Holmdel, New Jersey. He is also being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence.

    The 1984 Rookie of the Year and 1985 Cy Young Award winner has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for more than three decades. He was suspended from baseball for part of the 1994 season and all of the 1995 season after testing positive for cocaine. He has been arrested several times and served jail time in 2006 for drug use.

    Gooden told ESPN in 2011 that he missed the Mets' 1986 World Series parade because he was getting high.
    He and a number of his Mets teammates were notorious for being drug users during the mid to late '80s.

    I saw him back in April during a sports memorabilia show. He looked bad, man. Not surprised to see that he's back on the stuff again. What a damn shame.

    Is it bad that I donít even care?

    I donít do drugs, or condone them, but I just donít care.

    Doc, go do all the cocaine you want. Snort up a mountain, shove it in your butt if you want. I just donít care.
