Transplanted ex-Mets update: Dwight Gooden arrested for DUI

The Mets got Reyes back on the field today, but Matt Cerrone passes along word that Mets graffiti artist Doc Gooden was arrested for DUI early this morning. Can the season start already?

UPDATE from the Associated Press:

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. (AP)—Former Major League Baseball star Dwight Gooden has been charged in New Jersey with driving under the influence of drugs and leaving the scene of an accident.

Franklin Lakes police Capt. Joseph Seltenrich says the 45-year-old former pitcher for the New York Mets and Yankees had a child in his vehicle at the time of the two-vehicle crash around 9 a.m. Tuesday. It wasn’t clear whose child it was.

If this isn't the saddest story you'll hear all day I feel bad for you.
