Appetite for Self-Destruction -- Adler Busted Again

2/1/2009 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Steven AdlerWe've learned Steven Adler -- former drummer for Guns 'N Roses -- has been busted (again) on a drug charge.

Cops tell us Adler was arrested on Jan. 26th and charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance -- a misdemeanor. We don't know the exact substance.

We're told Steven was released the same day at 10:50 AM on $50,527 bail (weirdest amount we ever done seen). No court date has been set.

Adler was busted last July for possession of narcotics, being under the influence and for an outstanding warrant -- and was ordered by the court to stay at the Pasadena Recovery Center.

UPDATE: 6:22 PM ET Steven's people say he was arrested because he hadn't finished his community service in the time frame given by the judge. They say Adler went to register as a drug offender -- also court ordered -- on the 26th, when cops acted on the arrest warrant stemming from the unfinished community service. He was charged with "being under the influence of a controlled substance" because that was the original charge from his July arrest.

Steven's people want to make it clear he was not under the influence of drugs.

I fully agree with "dee", it seems Dr. Drew is playing god and messing with peoples lives for the sake of ratings and his own personal gain. Clearly 20 - 30 days is not a long enough program for someone who has been a daily user for decades. It is sad and sick that people find pleasure and/or interest in other's pain. His life story is worthy of telling, just not now, just not on reality TV. Fact is...he still hasn't bottomed out yet and until he does and is placed in jail for an extended period of time he is going to continue to use. He needs to take a page out of Steve Earles book...Let's ask Steve Earle to comment on Dr. Drew's techniques, should be colorful response.

wasn't this just on tv on VH1's recovery house or what ever it's called ? Or is this a new bust. On VH1 he went to some hospital or it was jail time. The woman who runs the House turned him in. He was smoking Herion in the Bathroom.

Unfortunately this is a new bust. The one you saw on TV happened back in the summer '08.

I feel bad for this guy. I've seen him on Celebrity Rehab, and Sober House. It sucks that he is hopelessly addicted, but he does seem like a genuinely nice guy. I hope one day he can get his life turned around.
