Trey Anastasio Busted

DECEMBER 15--Former Phish frontman Trey Anastasio was arrested early this morning on a driving while intoxicated rap and New York cops found the musician in possession of a variety of medications prescribed to another person.

Anastasio, who is pictured in the adjacent mug shot snapped by the Whitehall Police Department, was nabbed at around 3:30 AM following a traffic stop by Patrolman Andrew Mija.

Anastasio failed field sobriety tests and was found to be carrying Xanax, Percocet, and Hydrocodone.

The 42-year-old musician, whose first name is Ernest, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, DWI-drugs, and driving without a license. Whitehall is located in upstate New York, just miles from Vermont, where Phish was spawned. (1 page)
