    Comedian Artie Lange was recently arrested on charges of drug possession outside his Hoboken home, reports the Hudson Reporter.

    Lange, 49, who has a history of drug addiction and was recently featured on the new HBO series "Crashing," was reportedly arrested on Sunday after allegedly being found with drugs in the parking garage of his building at 14th Street and Shipyard Lane.

    Police said officers found cocaine, heroin and drug paraphernalia in Lange's possession, both on him and in his car. They had been responding to a report of someone trying to enter a parked car in the garage when an officer saw what he thought was drugs inside the car. Lange allegedly told police it was his car. Police said that after searching Lange, they found several bags of what appeared to be heroin and cocaine.

    The former "Howard Stern Show" sidekick was released on a summons and is due to appear in court.

    Lange has spoken publicly about his drug use over the years. In 2010, he was hospitalized after a suicide attempt.

    In recent episodes of "Crashing," Lange, who also hosts the "Artie Quitter" podcast, plays himself opposite comedian Pete Holmes, the creator and star of the show, who plays a comedian trying to make it in the New York stand-up scene. Lange takes on Holmes as a kind of protege, at least temporarily. One plot point in the Judd Apatow-produced series involves Lange asking Holmes to keep him away from drugs and alcohol when he visits Albany to perform. (Holmes does this by preventing a drug-toting fan from meeting up with Lange after his show.)

    In 2009, Lange was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and careless driving after crashing his car into another car in Toms River. Lange, who pleaded guilty, said he had been taking prescription sleeping pills, and his driving privileges were revoked for seven months.

    Last year, the comedian sold his Toms River home for $1.35 million.

    Artie Lange talks 'Crashing,' Howard Stern, podcasting

    Comedian Pete Holmes created the semi-autobiographical 'Crashing' in which Artie Lange plays one of his mentors



    Lange, who grew up in Union Township and is scheduled to play the Wellmont Theater in Montclair on March 24, the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank on April 8 and BergenPAC in Englewood on April 14, hasn't mentioned the reported incident on Twitter, but on Wednesday he posted, "Looks like it's me against the world again. Here's a tip. Bet on the world It's undefeated."

    In a recent interview, when asked about his "personal demons," Lange told NJ Advance Media that a fan considered his 2008 memoir, "Too Fat to Fish," like a "textbook."

    "I never thought anyone would try to advice from me -- at any level," Lange said. "I am able to tell the guys, not how to be funny, I'm certainly not the funniest guy around, but how to not step on land mines that I did. They're not all so obvious, 'Don't do drugs.'"

    The Hardest Time I Laughed - Crashing Episode 1 (HBO)
    In the interview, Lange also said he had a falling out with Stern after he began touring more and became a "junkie."

    I was always a drug addict, but heroin didn't come in a big way until I had done the road too much and I overextended myself. It was nothing but my fault. Howard tried to help me. I just did the road too much. The money was three times what I was making, and I got addicted to the money. And then I had to be nocturnal on the weekends and had to have paper route hours during the week. ... I became a full-blown junkie, and when you do that, after helping me and trying to help me immensely, they tell you in rehab, you might lose some relationships that you cherish, and Howard is one of them.

    I'd be surprised if Artie is alive right now.

    If he makes his shows tonight and doesn't OD before he flies home tomorrow, it'll be a miracle.

    I bet Judd won't drop Art because he provides too much crazy material for Crashing. They need ratings and Artie's craziness will get them that for a while anyway.
