Artie Lange

Proclaims DUI Innocence

7/13/2009 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Artie Lange"Howard Stern Show" funnyman Artie Lange has been open about his battles with drugs and alcohol -- so when he says he wasn't drunk the day he was busted for DUI, we tend to believe him.

Artie proclaimed his innocence during today's show on Sirius. He explained that he was on his way to pick up a prescription for his sick mother when, as we first reported, he rear-ended another car.

Lange said he blew a 0.0 on his Breathalyzer and passed every test the officer gave him -- he said he doesn't know what part he failed.

Lange was charged with driving under the influence and is due back in court on Thursday.

What a fat, slob, liying bastard... he probably has enough booze stored in his fat to blow over for the next ten years... get this menace off of our highways before an innocent person... who eats welll.... is killed by this pant load.

So he blew a 0.0. Not a big deal even if it's true. It's driving while under the influence, not just driving drunk. So instead of booze, it was drugs that were the influence. I don't know what he was blowing before, but he's clearly blowing smoke now.

There must have been a reading portion of the test.

"Cops tells us Artie was driving a 2009 Nissan Sentra when he rear-ended a 2004 Pontiac. He was charged with DUI and careless driving."

Artie was driving a Sentra because he crashed his Mercedes a few weeks ago driving on heroin. This crash didnt make the news....

I'm not a lawyer    

So Artie blew and came up with a zero-point-zero. Same thing happened to the radio show that took the place of the Howard Stern show when it went satellite radio.

i was wondering why the guy was driving a nissan sentra, even if he smashed up his mercedes, i think the rental would be a little better than that piece of crap car
