Artie Lange was busted with heroin and cocaine in the parking garage of his complex in Hoboken, NJ ... according to reports.The comedian and 'Howard Stern Show' star allegedly had several bags of drugs on him and more in his car and was arrested on Sunday. Cops say he was taken to police headquarters and booked on three separate charges before he was released.
Artie has a long history of drug and alcohol abuse and was hospitalized in 2010 after an apparent suicide attempt.

Is anyone surprised? This is a waste of police resources. The guy needs help.  He's a prime Dead Pool candidate.

Not sure this applies to b level celebrities, but usually having "several bags" nabs you an intent to distribute charge.

This is one of the least surprising bits of news I've heard in a while. I don't think he's ever stopped using except for some very brief periods, but his usage seems to have increased recently due to his even more erratic behavior than usual. As far as the amounts go, although it would tend to suggest distribution, I see it more as him buying in bulk for personal use.

As a Howard Stern Show aside, there are fans of that show who in their distaste for what Howard has evolved into as a person heap immense blame on him for firing Artie Lange and "not helping" him, whatever that is supposed to mean. Is this latest incident not proof that the guy was a liability to that show as well as a hazard to have around?

I think it's disgusting he was busted for carrying bags that are obviously for personal use. Fuck it, if the guy wants to do a truckload of H, let him. Who fucking cares. The War on Drugs is the biggest crock of bullshit going. If the guy wants to do drugs, let him do as much as he can. Personally I do whatever I can get my hands on. I enjoy it. He enjoys it. We hurt nobody. We both have the fiscal resources to afford our vices. I don't mug old ladies and neither does Artie. When I feel like stopping, it's as simple as that. I stop. Saying this "addiction" is a "disease" is absolute bullshit. It all comes down to if a person wants to indulge themself or not. It's not a disease. Cancer is a disease.

I agree with all of that except the part where he could stop if he wants to. It's pretty obvious he can't. The "disease" debate is semantics and who knows, but some people have real problems with this stuff. It's not a legal issue though. If they try to get him on distribution that will be an atrocity.

No no, I didn't say that Artie could stop when he wants to, but some of people can. Maybe he can too, who knows. The older you get the harder it is to recover. I know that first hand. But you adjust your usage to allow you to live your day to day life. I firmly believe, and anyone can certainly disagree, but I think the so called "addiction" comes down to an individuals inner makeup. I've been getting high on various shit since I was 12 years old. I have a very comfortable life and never let the drugs overcome me. Maybe I have the Ozzy, Keith, Lemmy gene. Yes, I've attended most of the guys I grew up with funerals. In fact, I had one die on me today. Believe me, I'm not saying this for dramatic impact. Some people can take it and some can't. But it is none of the gubmints bizness how I defile myself.

It hurts nobody until you need a fix and have to steal to get money for it or you have a violent rage from it and attack someone.

No one gets hurt until you shoot the Mother of 3 so you can get the $40 in her purse to get 2 hits.

How many times is the mother of three killed by a drunk driver which of course is caused by the perfectly legal alcohol. My point is, this shit should be decriminalized. Portugal did it years ago and they haven't turned into Uganda.

Artie was completely sober while filming that softball movie he did. When it wrapped, he left the set and did heroin for a week. Jason Mewes did the same thing when filming Jay and Silent Bob, to the point he was so fucked up he couldn't do any of his press requirements.

I just got comped tickets to see him Friday night in Montclair, NJ.  I assume the show is still going on as planned.  We'll see how my wife is feeling but I'm down to go and it will be interesting to hear what he has to say about all of this.  I don't think he's done any shows since his arrest.

Artie Lange, just like Howard Stern, hasn't been relevant since the 90's.

Yeah I went. OK show. Nothing special. Did an hour, mentioned the bust a few times in passing but didn't do a specific bit about it.  Almost his whole act is on drugs and gambling anyway.  Looked like shit and got very sweaty and tired by the end. Overall funny but also still pretty bitter about Stern.  And it appears that he's burned bridges with HBO over the arrest (he said he had been offered his own series the day before) and he tried to tell a few jokes about always shooting himself in the foot, but this is just sad.
