Exclusive Details

0730_artie_lange_tmzMt. Artie Lange finally erupted -- the former "Howard Stern Show" comedian has been suspended from his new radio gig for pissing on the studio floor ... and demanding 2 PAs clean it up.

Artie just tweeted "Direct Tv has suspended me from the N&A show for the next 2 nights. They won't tell me fully why. Can't continue w them. Sorry guys. Luv u."

Odd that Artie claims to not know why he was benched. Sources connected to the "Nick and Artie Show" tell TMZ the suspension came down because Artie urinated on the studio floor -- while on the air Friday.

As if that wasn't enough, he asked "Twinsanity" ... the show's 2 female PAs to clean it up. When they refused, some other poor schmuck got stuck with cleanup duty (below).

0730_artie_pissWe're told when Artie was informed of the 2 day suspension -- he threatened to leave the show for good.

Artie also tweeted ... "Direct Tv are good ppl. I apologize to them for doing an offensive show."

Our sources made it clear ... Artie has NOT been fired -- and honchos at DirecTV think he just needs a couple of days to reevaluate.

Artie's agent tells TMZ, "As Artie stated, he is sorry for the events that transpired on the show last Friday.  He is fully committed to working with DirecTV and looking forward to his return."

4:25PM PT  Artie has deleted his 2 tweets about DirecTV and his suspension. As for why? Still waiting to hear from his reps.

Agreed. He's a no talent, disgusting slob who was never funny to begin with. He was given another chance that he didn't deserve and pissed all over it. I hope he gets it right the next time he attempts to off himself.

I'm not huge Howard Stern fan so I have noo idea who this guy is but hes fcuking disgusting!! He should be fired permanently!! I'm guessing it's his job is to be an a$$hole but anyone can do that! I don't see why this guy thinks he's the sh*t and irreplaceable! Radio personalities are always so ****y and so obese hahaha

He didn't pee on the floor! He was just diagnosed with diabetes and is trying to get it under control with his doctor. He was doing the radio show and he tried to hold it until the next break but couldn't. When he felt like he was about to pee in his pants, he stood up and pissed in a little garbage can that was against the wall. A little bit got on the wallpaper. He was teasing the girls about cleaning it up. Let's get the story straight please.
