According to a spokesman for the Hoboken Police Department, "Officers responded to the area of 14th Street and Shipyard Lane [where Lange lives] on a report of someone attempting to enter a vehicle that was parked inside the garage. Officer Zeszotarski was able to observe what appeared to be suspected heroin and cocaine inside the vehicle. A male later identified as the defendant approached the officers and confirmed it was his vehicle....A search of his person also revealed several more bags of suspected heroin along with cocaine."
He was transported to police headquarters and the police confiscated the drugs that were inside the vehicle.
Police confirmed on Friday that he was released on a summons with an upcoming court date for his appearance.
Lange, 49, was arrested on three charges.
The comedian has written about drug use before and was hospitalized in 2010 after apparently attempting to commit suicide.
