Howard Stern Sidekick Artie Lange Attempted Suicide
What caused the ‘Dirty Work’ actor to want to take his own life?
Comedian and author Artie Lange was rushed to the hospital over the weekend after stabbing himself a total of nine times.
Lange’s mother visited his apartment on Saturday morning, and quickly dialed 911 upon surveying the damage her son had committed.
A law-enforcement insider later reported that Howard Stern’s loyal sidekick suffered six “hesitation wounds” and three deep plunges.
“We all have our demons,” Stern announced on the air this week. “Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He’s a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don’t forget how great he is.”(The New York Post)
