Lange was caught with the drugs by police in his home garage.
“Officers responded to the address on a report of someone attempting to enter a vehicle that was parked inside the garage,” the spokesperson said.
Officer Zeszotarski was able to observe what appeared to be suspected heroin and cocaine inside the vehicle. A male later identified as Artie Lange approached the officers and confirmed it was his vehicle. A search of his person also revealed several more bags of suspected heroin along with cocaine.
Artie responded to the arrest via twitter. “I wish I could tell u how my story ends. I hope it’s being old & smiling because of unique memories. But I’m such a flawed person guys. Tryin!”
While performing on stage at The Wellmont Theater on March 24th Artie mentioned that he could face a year in county jail. “Don’t do drugs, guys, honestly. Kids, look at me. I’m 24 years old.”
