The retired ace is known as “Doc” is the latest in a sad saga that began during the peak of his stunning career in the 1980s.
The 1985 National League Cy Young Award winner led the Mets to their most recent World Series championship in 1986 — but fell into hard-partying ways.
He entered rehab in 1987 after testing positive for cocaine during Mets training camp.
In 1995, Gooden was suspended for the entire season for failing yet another drug test. His checkered past also includes busts for reckless driving, driving with a suspended license and battery for allegedly hitting his fiancée.
Gooden did an eight-month stint in jail for violating probation when he showed up high on cocaine to a meeting with his probation officer in 2006.
