MLB Legend Dwight Gooden

Removed From Home After

Threatening Estranged Wife

3/3/2013 12:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303-dwight-gooden-gettyThe estranged wife of Dwight Gooden has been granted a temporary restraining order against the baseball legend after she had to call the police on him for making threats against her and her family … TMZ has learned.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Monique Gooden called the Bergen County Police Department in New Jersey on March 1. Monique claims Dwight made "terroristic threats," specifically claiming he said, "All bets are off and I will hurt you and your family. You'll see, just wait."

We're told when police arrived, they called a family court judge who granted Monique a temporary restraining order on the spot after speaking to her on the phone.

Dwight is currently living in the same home as Monique as the couple goes through their divorce, but the judge ordered Dwight to grab his belongings and leave ... which he did. He was not arrested or taken into custody by police.

The court order also strips Dwight of visitation of his two young children until the next court hearing ... which is March 11. The judge will also decide at that time on whether to make the temporary restraining order a permanent one.

He was also ordered to continue to make payments on the Range Rover and its insurance for his wife, and make child support payments from a previous court order.

Monique filed for divorce back on November 20, 2012 after three years of marriage. Dwight was arrested back in 2005 for allegedly hitting Monique after she threw a phone at him.

Calls to Dwight were not returned.

For him, drugs were better than marriage. More rewarding.

I recall that Doc Gooden made false accusations against former teammate Kevin Mitchell. Something about cutting off a girlfriend's cat's head and unlawful imprisonment. Hmmm.
