WHITEHALL -- Former Phish frontman Trey Anastasio was arrested by village police early this morning and charged with DWI-drugs after they stopped his car for failure to keep right.

Ernest Anastasio was stopped at 3:30 a.m. by Patrolman Andrew Mija who said the musician was observed to be under the influence of a narcotic substance after failing field testing, Patrolman Jeff Whalen said this morning.

Anastasio lives in Vermont, which is just over the border from this Washington County community. Whalen said he had a suspended driver's license in New York and allegedly was found with an assortment of prescription
medications including hydrocodone, Percocet and Xanax, which were prescribed for another person.

Anastasio was charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and DWI - drugs, Whalen said. He was released from custody with appearance tickets for a later date.


How about they make a series of new movies:

"Ernesto Goes To Rehab and The Band Breaks Up"
"Ernesto Goes to Africa To Hold Hands With Dave Matthews"
"Ernesto Makes A Shitty Record With An Orchestra"
"Ernesto Goes to Jail For A DWI On Pills"

"Fluff went to a banker
Askin for some bills
The banker said, "I aint got that
But I sure got some powerful pills."

For all you that are fans of "U2" rebel music/fans of guys who wear tight jeans and leather vests (B) and those who don't understand the Epic "Tower Jam" at IT. (B) - Above are some ironic lyrics from the song "Fluffhead" by Phish
