artie lange wireimage Report: Artie Lange's hospitalization due to suicide attemptPage Six of the New York Post is reporting that Howard Stern’s radio sidekick Artie Lange’s recent hospitalization was due to an apparent suicide attempt — by stabbing himself nine times. The Post’s law enforcement source says that Lange sustained six “hesitation wounds” and three “deep plunges.”

We reported that Artie Lange was hospitalized this past Saturday (Jan.
2) but at the time no one knew why. There was speculation it was a
substance-abuse issue, stemming from Lange’s history with drugs and his
2008 stint in rehab and October 2009 DUI charge for driving while under
the influence of prescription medication.
