Stern sidekick Artie Lange stabs himself nine times in suicide attempt



Comedian and Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange has been hospitalized after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, the New York Post reports.

Lange's mother had dropped by his home in Hoboken, N.J., on Saturday to give her son some food when she found him bleeding, the paper says. A law-enforcement source said Lange had six "hesitation wounds" and three deep plunges. Surgeons saved the 42-year-old comic.

"We all have our demons," Stern said about Lange's fight with addiction during his satellite radio show this week. "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don't forget how great he is."
