Howard Stern protege, Artie Lange, was arrested and charged with drug possession after cops detained him in the parking structure of his Hoboken, NJ, residence. The comedian was found in possession of ‘several bags’ of heroin and cocaine, aka, a “John Belushi Speedball Special.”
According to tmz, the comedian had several bags of drugs on him and more in his car and was arrested on Sunday. Lange was transported to the Hoboken police headquarters and booked on three separate drug charges before being released on his own recognizance.
After his release, Lange went on a tweetstream of conscience, apologizing to fans for his arrest while adding that he soon may be homeless:
“Hey guys. I was arrested. I’m doing great. Physically too! I’m in St. Louis & will be on stage this weekend at The Funnybone! Love u all!..”
