Warrant Singer Arrested for DUI

5/10/2010 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Jani Lane from the 80s hairband Warrant is currently being booked on suspicion of DUI.


LAPD arrested Lane in Woodland Hills, CA on Sunday night.

Police sources tell us Lane was driving a black Infiniti sedan when he allegedly hit a parked car. Officers arrived on the scene and gave Lane a field sobriety test -- we're told he did not do well and was arrested.  Lane's car is pretty mangled, but there were no injuries reported.

According to sources, Lane blew more than twice the legal limit of .08 when officers gave him a breathalyzer test at the police station. He was released at 3:17 AM.

Lane -- who is no longer with the band Warrant -- pleaded no contest to misdemeanor DUI in July 2009. A hit-and-run charge was dropped as part of that plea deal, and the judge put him on probation for three years.

Bonus fact: We're told Jani was arrested today by the same cop who arrested him last summer.  Go figure.

He must've been in a rush to get home and have some cherry pie.

The real reason he was arrested was for being the lead singer from Warrant.

His sense of reality is completely distorted. Driving what looks like a $50K+ vehicle while intoxicated and on probation for a previous DUI conviction??? This guy should never have driving privileges. He has no common sense. I could care less about him, it's the other innocent drivers that concern me.

For those who have never heard of Warrant, rest assured that the sound of buckling metal from Jani's latest fender bender is infinitely more pleasing to the ears than anything ever released by his band.



Thank god for 80s vinyl records. People bought Warrant albums just for the joy of melting them.

Celebrity Rehab awaits to try and help him with his drinking problem.



Do they make a "Washed up losers who never had any talent and are bitter because they were a one hit wonder for a reason" show? He'd be front & center on that.

Celebrity Rehab awaits for his drinking problem. Do they have a "Washed up losers who never had any talent, just a gimmick and a lot of hair" show? They should, this idiot would be front & center.
