0217_shifty_shellshock_EX_01
Former "Celebrity Rehab" star Shifty Shellshock was arrested for possession of rock cocaine last night ... after getting into an argument with his GF at a Ross Dress for Less ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ ... the former Crazy Town singer and his GF were arguing inside of the Ross on Sunset Blvd. in L.A. last night ... when things allegedly turned physical.

We're told a Ross employee believes he saw Shifty grab the woman by the arm and rough her up ... so the employee ran outside and flagged down police.

Sources tell us ... cops searched Shellshock and found rock cocaine ... and arrested the guy for possession of a controlled substance.

We're told Shifty is still in police custody.

37-year-old Shifty -- real name Seth Binzer -- appeared on 2 installments of "Celeb Rehab" and 2 installments of "Sober House" to deal with his struggles with drugs.

Some of these crackheads just never learn, and then there are the women who love them.

In the history of music videos there are few that I hated more than that stupid Butterfly video. I knew he was a loser then and this just helps confirm it now.

It's amazing what TMZ considers a star. His name is shifty and he's been busted for coke. Rihanna is probably going to want to date him?

"star" is stretching it a bit. The dude had one semi hit song 12 years ago and has since been a crack head. Hmmmm if only Whitney were still alive, she might want to marry this guy. CRACK IS WACK

Proof that drugs are not important, and often deleterious, to the creative process. Unless Crazy Town's Butterfly was intended to be a nightmare salvia hit in a especially bright part of a McDonald's restaurant, as Ronald McDonald enters with a cake and balloons. Skulls & Stars wasn't awful.

Does anyone (other than TMZ) use the term "rock cocaine"? I thought it was either "rock", "crack" or "crack cocaine". Hmmm. Think I'll have a marijuana cigarette.
