Canned Phish: Axeman Anastasio Jailed!

1/24/2008 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio just got tossed in the can for two days in upstate New York -- for missing a drug counseling session, of all things. Bouncing around the cell!

Trey spent last Wednesday through Friday at the Washington County Jail, in Fort Edward, N.Y., after he violated the terms of a guilty plea made back in April. He was popped during a traffic stop in December 2006 for having painkillers without a prescription.

Sheriff Roger Leclaire told the Glens Falls Post-Star that Anastasio was in the general inmate population and that his stay was "uneventful."

Way to go TMZ! I thought this might be off the radar for you guys... All be it, this is a little late. Must be a slow news day w/ all the rain and such.
BTW, "Canned Phish" & "Bouncing around the cell"... Very funny! How about; “That's a Bitter Sweet Motel”… Nah… You can use it if you want though.
Any word on where he was instead? Playing the guitar or hockey or something like that? No drugs involved right?
I hope he didn’t prolong his parole; there are a lot of crazy hippies out there waiting for him to tour again.
Oh yeah #1, FYI, Fishman is the drummer, Trey is the guitar player. And I’m a dork for knowing all of this.

Thank you TMZ, for covering this story, FYI - Trey missed one counseling session, actually was a few minutes late for it and so he had to do the 2 day penalty in jail. He has passed all drug tests since he got arrested, keep it going Trey :)
Trey is one of the most talented musicians alive and Phish rocked!

I'm in a similar situation. It's 5:31 AM, I can't sleep because I have a probation meeting this morning. To all the music lovers and people alike on probation; This isn't forever and we will be completly free again. I've heard it all but the most likely thing to maybe happen is they all come back under a different name like "JEMP".
