Warrant Issued for Former Warrant Singer

3/3/2010 2:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The singer responsible for "Cherry Pie" is a wanted man once again -- but this time it's a judge who wants an audience with him instead of a bunch of groupies that reek of Vidal Sassoon hairspray.

TMZ has learned a warrant was ironically issued for former Warrant singer Jani Lane last week, after he failed to show up to two court appearances connected to his 2009 DUI conviction.

We're told Lane was scheduled to appear in court on February 23 to show the judge he's completed his alcohol classes and community service -- but he never showed.

The court date was rescheduled for February 24 ... but Lane missed that one too.

We spoke to Lane's lawyer, who says the singer has been in the hospital and won't be able to make it to court until next week.

As for why he's in the hospital ... no word.

I would like to see a remake " She's my DUI!" it could be a catchy tune. I saw his has been wife Bobbie Brown or whatever her name was on Blind date a few years ago. She looked about as bad as he did.

I love how everyone "hits" someone at their lowest. Just like "Junkdawg said" you are all probably bald, fat, out of shape and sittin' at the computer ready to hit the key on the next "Fallen singer/actor. I know for fact that Alcoholism is a disease not a choice. He needs help not slander and put downs. & yes, he's my Brother and I'm scared he won't be around, thank you all for letting me know that!

The sad truth is Jani is basically, Knocking on Heaven's door. I am very close to him and just want to say he has battled addiction all of his adult life. He is a fighter but has given up the fight a few years ago. Along with fame and money comes people in need. In need of what ever you have to offer them.. Being an addict this is a bad combo. It is a vicious and deadly cycle. They don't care about your well being and take and give you your drug of choice keeping you in a state where they can control you. Yes he can stop this but why he is an addict and the addiction is being fed and is stronger then he is. Jani is a when in his right frame of mind is a loving, caring, giving, person. He has to be strong and move on. He was drunk in Vegas after is mess of a show and didn't return for his court date. Then was in the ER battling for his life. Now he know what to do. Will he? Hopefully he will seek out the decent and few people he still knows and get some help and go to his meetings! Dr. Drew has been his doctor and is just a phone call a way and he knows that. Addiction kills... It wounds children he has two lovely daughter's who read these blogs. Please have a heart. This is a man he is a person not someone to make a joke of!
