Former Mets and Yankees World Series winning pitcher Dwight "Doc" Gooden was arrested for cocaine possession by police in New Jersey last month, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.
Gooden also found himself in trouble for showing up high on cocaine to a meeting with his probation officer in 2006.
Gooden was pulled over for driving too slowly on a highway, failing to maintain the lane and for having overly tinted windows, which are illegal in the Garden State, prosecutor's spokesman Christopher Swendeman said.
The picture was posted on Twitter four days after he was reportedly arrested in New Jersey.
In the documents obtained by The Post today, Gooden was charged with possession of an illegal narcotic in the third-degree, among another charge for carrying drug paraphernalia.
Gooden is scheduled to appear in court on July 23.
