Artie Lange

Pleads Guilty to DUI

9/30/2009 5:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Artie Lange We've learned comedian Artie Lange just pled guilty to one count driving under the influence of a habit-producing drug.

Cops say Artie -- who was pulled over in Tom's River, NJ on July 10 -- had a prescribed sleeping pill in his system when he got behind the wheel.

Lange was fined $664, his driver's license was revoked for seven months and he has to serve 12 hours in an intoxicated driver resource program.

Lange's lawyer, MIchael Grasso, says Artie pled guilty because "If we would have taken it to trial the interest of the media would have outweighed the best interests of my client."

Grasso also said the prosecution planned to call more than 10 witnesses and he would have had to counter that with a dozen witnesses of his own -- so the plea just made sense.

I'm not sure anything can outweigh his fat ass.

All I know is he's on my death list. He won't last long. He's been a drugged out drunk for years. His liver and heart are in a head to head contest to which one wears out first.

He's had more chances at movies, TV and know radio. He's screwed up every chance he's had. Adios Artie. You have no one to blame but yourself. You Howard Stern Ass Puppet.

An obese slob with a filthy mouth and a drug problem is not a good combination. He's irrelevant.
