Artie Lange arrested for missed court date

Comedian and radio personality Artie Lange faces more legal problems after he was arrested Tuesday night at his Hoboken home for failing to make a court appearance, at least the second time the troubled entertainer has allegedly missed a court date this year.

Lange was arrested by State Police in Bloomfield May 12 during a plainclothes surveillance operation, Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura said.

Lange, a Union native who rose to fame as a performer on Howard Stern's radio show, was seen driving his Range Rover erratically and at a high rate of speed away from a McDonald's on the Garden State Parkway, Fontoura said.

When he was stopped, detectives allegedly found Lange with a bag of heroin on his lap. He was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and drug paraphernalia, Fontoura said.

Lange was arrested Tuesday for failing to appear in Essex County Superior Court to answer for the charges stemming from the May arrest.

Tuesday's arrest comes on the heels of a bizarre episode over the weekend in which Lange tweeted a picture of himself looking disheveled and possibly injured, prompting a response from Hoboken police. Lange later apologized for the incident.

Lange has had a very public struggle with drug addiction. In 2010, he attempted suicide but then entered rehab, then set out to rebuild his career with a memoir, an HBO appearance and a successful podcast.

But in March, he was arrested in Hoboken for heroin and cocaine possession. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to show up in municipal court on those charges.

In a tweet he posted shortly after that warrant was issued, Lange attributed his absence from court to "bad communication" with his lawyer. He also apologized to Hoboken police.

In October, Lange, who describes himself as diabetic, cancelled a show in Ohio because of dangerously high blood sugar, he said on his podcast.

When is Jimmy's contract up? Give the people what they claim they want.
People certainly want it. Not me. I can't stand listening to them anymore. It's literally the same terrible jokes over and over.

Jim could do both shows if he wanted.

Why are we certain that Artie isn't coming back?

I think it's up to the grim reaper at this point. But Artie does seem to have that cockroach gene. If drinking bleach and stabbing himself with a foot-long knife didn't do him in, this ain't shit.

I mean, he may be forced to do rehab or even some jail time but Ant won't dump him for a minor vacation in the slammer. Think of the stories....

Different 'podcast' network, sir.

I believe Bobby Kelly has them in a nut crushing contract, too.
