Dwight Gooden Turns Himself In -- Fled DUI Test

 

Former MLB Rookie of the Year Dwight Gooden has turned himself in to police in Florida yesterday after fleeing the scene where officers had pulled him over for a DUI test on Monday night. He was pulled over in downtown Tampa.

Gooden has a history of substance abuse, including testing positive to cocaine use in 1994 while playing for the Devil Rays. He was charged last night with fleeing police, DUI and resisting arrest without violence. His attorney did not comment.

Devil Rays' manager Lou Piniella said yesterday that "He's a good young man. He just needs to get his priorities straight. He's got a long life ahead of him and a lot of people that care about him. The only problem is he's got to help himself."
