Barenaked Ladies singer arrested

Steven Page charged with drug possession

Barenaked Ladies singer-guitarist Steven Page has been arrested on drug charges in upstate New York.

Police say Page was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance on Friday in the Syracuse, N.Y., area.

Authorities say the arrest occurred at about 2 a.m. after police noticed a suspicious car with its driver's side door left open. They say they found Page and two women in a nearby apartment, along with cocaine and marijuana.

Barenaked Ladies' manager Terry McBride confirmed the charge to the Post-Standard of Syracuse but declined to comment further. The singer, released after paying $10,000 bail, is due in court Wednesday.
