In a recent episode of the A&A show, Anthony Cumia explained why Artie Lange won’t be on the show anymore. Cumia said Artie needs to take time away from the show to deal with his drug possession case.
“From this point to the foreseeable future, this is much too serious to try and pin a date on. We just won’t see Artie around here anymore. I’m sorry to say. The bottom line really is he needs to fix Artie Lange. He can’t worry about making it to this show every day,” said Cumia.
“After speaking with Artie Lange for a little while it has been determined that Artie Lange will be concentrating on Artie Lange. This is the deal. It has to be done. The guy is in extreme danger at this point. Both physically and legally coming up. This is no joke. He could literally be going to a federal pound me in the ass prison.”
Artie was arrested for drug possession last year, 81 decks of heroin to be specific. He was supposed to be sentenced in February, but that date was pushed back when he was hospitalized for health-related issues. Lange is set to be sentenced on June 1st, 2018.
