TOMS RIVER, N.J. — Comedian and radio personality Artie Lange has pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of a habit-producing drug in a minor traffic accident in New Jersey.
The 41-year-old Lange was charged following the July 10 accident in Toms River, about 40 miles southeast of Trenton. He entered his plea Wednesday in municipal court.
Judge James Ligouri revoked his driving privileges for seven months.
Lange, a regular on radio’s “Howard Stern Show,” said he was under the influence of prescribed sleeping pills, which he had last taken the night before the crash.
