'Celeb Rehab' Star

Arrested for Rock Cocaine

2/17/2012 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

More like he got busted with CRACK. When your white it's rock cocaine but when your black it's called crack. Double standard...

What are the odds someone named Shifty is not a decent person?

He really needs that pay check from Celebrity Rehab and Dr. Drew told him he needs publicity or there will be no Celebrity Rehab season. So you see the results of those two geniuses.

Celebrity Re-Hab star - WTF?! How does one consider these people stars. I used to be a fan of Dancing With the Stars until they started shoving "reality" stars and anybody related to a "star" - ugh! Who cares? Stop it alread! TMZ is covering these "stars" - like the teenage mom - yuk! Or rap stars. Do you realize how many TV watchers absolutely hate rap. You're turning off people lately...sorry.

It's too bad that this guy just can't get his life together. I had heard that CRazy Town signed to Suburban Noize records and was supposed to be having an album drop this year or next. Until these drug problems can dissipate though, I don't see them getting anything done.

This is so sad... he seems like such a likeable guy. Hope he gets his shift together soon.

I'd say Ross Dress for Less is the real star in this story.

I met Shifty a few months ago as he was ripping open packages of “wife beaters” and trying them on at Target on Sunset. Odd behavior yes, but didn’t seem drug fueled; just Shifty being crazy ass Shifty. He was sober, very happy to be making music again and looked healthy. Super nice dude. I really hate to see him going through this again, but he is an addict to his core. That’s hard to shake.

Throwback kid    

Has Dr Drew ever helped any people who actually become sober? In my book Dr Drew is a bigger loser than these D list celebs he puts on his show and doesn't help. Heck, Mike Starr and Jeff Conway both died. Dr Drew seems to love being on TV more than the celebs he is supposed to help. He's a TV doctor like Doctor Phil. The only one Dr Drew really helps is himself with fat paychecks from the shows he's on. Dr Drew has jumped the shark, time to get his smug face off TV
