The lead singer of Barenaked Ladies, Steven J. Page, has been charged with fourth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony. The controlled substance? Cocaine.
Police tell us that officers were patrolling the neighborhood of 311 East Genesee Street when they spotted a car that was parked across a driveway with the door open. Police stopped and checked the vehicle, which was unoccupied. The officers then checked the house and surrounding neighborhood to find the owner and if see there was any problem. Police checking the apartment building at 311 Genesee Street saw a man and a woman through a glass door sitting at a kitchen table. The officers noticed something suspicious looking on the table, and the people inside quickly covered the table with a towel when they saw police at the door. Police questioned the pair about the car outside. They also tested the substance under the towel and concluded it was cocaine.
Didn’t BNL recently release a children’s album? This oughtta help sales. Tee hee!
And on an unrelated note, you’ll all be pleased to hear that my passive-aggressive tactics have paid off. I will be attending The Dark Knight screening in Seattle tomorrow night. Woo hoo! See? Being an annoying pain in the ass does come with its rewards. Thanks Laremy and Mike!
