Usually if two eighteen-year-old males are in a car that ends up in a weekend fender bender on the Jersey Shore, most would assume that the youngsters had some culpability in the accident. That's not necessarily the case when the other party involved is comedian Artie Lange. The Howard Stern Show co-host was arrested yesterday at 1:30 p.m. in Toms River for driving under the influence and careless driving after rear-ending a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am with the two teens in it. The arresting officer said that he was unsure if Lange was under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs, but that Lange was a "a perfect gentleman" throughout the incident. The former MadTV star was released a few hours later and is schedule to appear tonight at a nearby library for a reading of his new book, "Too Fat to Fish." Lange has struggled with alcohol and drug problems and recently revealed that he had been sober for over two months. Upon buying a house down at the Shore last year, other members of the Stern team believed it would "help him out with his mental state."
