Barenaked Lady Busted for Booger Sugar

7/15/2008 6:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

According to cops, Lady Godiva ain't the only bare-naked lady riding a white horse.

Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page has been popped by cops in Central New York for allegedly possessing cocaine.

Cops in Manlius, NY say early last Friday morning officers saw a suspicious car with its doors open sitting outside an apartment building. While checking out the car, they observed a man and a woman inside one of the apartments sitting at a table with an "unknown white capsule" with a powdery substance in front of them. After a field test, the cops say the substance tested positive for cocaine.

The 38-year-old Page and a woman, 25-year-old Stephanie Ford, have both been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. Ford was also charged with pot possession.

Both have been released on $10,000 bail.

A rep for the band tells TMZ "We can not comment because the matter is before the court. We are confident that our client Steven will be completely exonerated. Until that time, it is business as usual for the Barenaked Ladies."

It's Been One Week    

Some additional info here:

The part of town he was busted is apparently known for substandard housing, so one has to wonder what a star like him was doing there.

As for the mug shot....that depends if he was housed at the local police department or taken to county for processing..either way, each department has its own policies for releasing mugshots..not everywhere is as loose as hollyweird.

he apparently separated from his wife last year. he's probably having some personal problems. getting caught in the US with cocaine will likely be enough to shake him up and get him back on his feet. too bad though, he always seemed like a very grounded guy
