TMZ Artie Lange’s mug shot tells a sad story of his fight with addiction. Artie was arrested 8 days ago at his home in Hoboken, NJ. Cops were called to his apartment complex after neighbors complained someone was trying to break into a car. They found heroin and cocaine, and Artie copped to owning the vehicle. They also found drugs on him. The ‘Howard Stern Show’ sidekick said, “I’m such a flawed person guys.” He has a long history of drug and alcohol abuse.
Artie Lange was arrested again last weekend in my town Hoboken, New Jersey, after neighbors reported someone trying to break into his car in the parking garage, but when cops responded they found cocaine and heroin in his vehicle. I feel bad for Artie Lange, for him drug addiction is clearly a disease, and he has to do battle with it every single day of his life. I have seen Artie do standup many times at the Comedy Cellar, and he is hilarious, but I have also run into him many times around Hoboken and he is a genuinely good guy. As Artie said himself, he’s flawed, but he seemed to be doing much better (despite the hair) and we hope this is just a bump in his road to recovery.
