Barenaked Ladies Star Caught Up In Drug Scandal

BARENAKED LADIES star STEVEN PAGE has been arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession.
On Friday (11Jul08) New York cops in Manilus observed the Canadian singer and his companion, Stephanie Ford, sitting at a cafe table with what appeared to be cocaine in front of them, as they answered a police report about a suspicious vehicle nearby.
The substance tested positive for cocaine, according to police reports obtained by TMZ.com.
Page and Ford have since been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. They were both released on $10,000 (GBP5,000) bail.
A representative for Barenaked Ladies tells TMZ.com, "We cannot comment because the matter is before the court. We are confident that out client Steven will be completely exonerated."
The controversy could not have come at a worse time for Barenaked Ladies, who have just released a children's album.
