On July 10, comedian and radio personality Artie Lange was arrested in New Jersey on charges of driving under the influence and careless driving after he was involved in a minor accident.
According to police in Toms River, New Jersey, at approximately 1:30 p.m., the 2009 Nissan Lange was driving rear-ended another vehicle. Police say no injuries were sustained in the collision and both vehicles only suffered minor damage.
Police say that the observations the responding officers made at the scene led to the charges against the 41-year-old comedian. Police took him to their headquarters to be processed.
Lange was issued summonses and released pending a municipal court appearance on July 16.
Lange is a regular on the “Howard Stern Show” and recently authored the best-seller Too Fat to Fish.
