Comedian Artie Lange, who you may recognize from "The Howard Stern Show", was arrested at his home for failing to appear in court in connection to a drug case.
Lange, who was picked up Tuesday night in New Jerse, had been collared by state police in Bloomfield in May during a sting operation, Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura said.
He was seen driving his Range Rover erratically and at a high rate of speed on the Garden State Parkway.
Lange’s arrest Tuesday comes after he posted a disturbing picture of himself looking disheveled and possibly injured on Twitter, prompting a response from police. He later apologized for his social media post.
The 50-year-old's eight year run on the Stern show ended in 2009, and the next year he attempted to commit suicide. He then entered rehab and tried to reestablish his career with a memoir, an HBO appearance and a successful podcast.
In March, Lange was arrested in Hoboken for possession of heroin and cocaine. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to show up in court on those charges.
Lange blamed his absence from that court appearance to “bad communication” with his lawyer and he apologized to the police again.
