Our hearts broke upon hearing the news of Comedian Artie Lange’s arrest for possession of heroin and cocaine.
Hoboken police spokesman Sgt. Edgardo Cruz tells to NJ Advance Media that 49-year-old Lange was arrested on Sunday after allegedly being found with drugs in the parking garage of his building.
Officers found cocaine, heroin and drug paraphernalia both on him and in his car.
Artie has a long history of addiction and his exploits have been detailed on the Howard Stern Radio Show, in his time as one of Howard’s trusty sidekicks. It was on this show that we fell in love with Artie and all his faults. He’s a man that wears his heart on his sleeve.
An addict can always relapse as having an addiction never goes away. It’s a constant daily struggle and you need to be disciplined. We have no idea what triggered Artie to find his way back to his vices but we’ll be praying for him to bounce back strong.
Two days after his arrest, Lange sent a tweet to Judd Apatow, who is producing the new HBO comedy series Crashing. In the show, Lange plays himself as a mentor to Peter Holmes’ character, who is trying to make it as a stand-up comedian.
@JuddApatow this got to me.I wish I could express how amazing Judd has been to me. But like most bright ppl he knows I ain’t gonna make it
