Baby Gorilla's mid-March coke & heroin bust has taken center stage of late, but some obsessive fans are hip to the fact that Artie Lange had also been arrested for drug possession way back in February 2016. On a brand new episode of Sam Morril's podcast "Keeping Joe" an unusually energetic Arthur Lange Jr. delves into some territory he's not discussed anywhere else before.. Here, Artie gives some details about his Feb '16 arrest AND his up-until-now-unknown SECOND arrest later in 2016!! (these stories begin about 60 min in) This is BREAKING NEWS as far as I know. Here's a description for those who don't want to listen: Following a retelling of the now-classic "I snorted glass!" yarn, Artie delves into his Feb '16 arrest. Artie says he was pulled over (in St. Louis?) with drugs on him. The cops were apparently fans of "the Show" and knocked his charges down to the least possible charge of possession. Art claims it should have been with intent!?! That's about all he says about it. He mentions getting probation later in the podcast, but may have been referring to his second, much crazier story, which connects his past with the present day: When Artie was a longshoreman, he took a second gig working for "a guy" who ran a stolen car insurance fraud scam. Artie says the job was very easy and he made $2500 for every car lifted. All he had to do was call a phone number, give a voice on the other end the location of a to-be stolen auto and that was that. Says he was offered the gig because, being younger, it was assumed his phone wouldn't be tapped. Artie eventually quit both jobs and moved to Hollywood to be on MadTV. Flash forward to late 2016: Artie claims he currently pays for five of his friend's rent?? One of these moochers asks Artie if he could get him the gig doing the car thing, despite being 20 years late to the party. Artie makes a couple calls and learns the son of the "the guy" who ran the scam is now handling the ring. Artie calls this kid to hook his friend up with the job. He notices "the kid" is very nervous on the phone. After hanging up, Artie leaves his place to walk to his car. A New Jersey SWAT team appears and arrests Artie for racketeering. Turns out, "the kid" is under indictment so his phone is tapped. As usual, the cops were fans and agreed to keep things quiet. The kid's old man ("the guy") got Artie a good lawyer and he receives only probation. Artie says the lawyer was free, but he still had to pay "somebody" $25,000... This second story sounds incredibly preposterous, but it will be in Artie's next book.
