Apparently Xanax, Percocet, and Vicodin weren’t the only drugs Trey possessed upon his December arrest for driving while drugging. WNYT in Albany is reporting that police found heroin in the former 70 Volt Parade guitarist’s automobile:
Ernest “Trey” Anastasio, the lead singer of the rock-jam band Phish, was in court in Whitehall Wednesday for his arraignment on misdemeanor drug charges. The 42-year-old musician was smiling as he left court with his wife and children by his side.
But NewsChannel 13 has learned Anastasio had heroin in his car and it appears the district attorney is ready to up the charges against the former Phish front man to a felony.
On the positive side, it’s nice to see Trey accompanied by his wife and two daughters at his arraignment, a sign that the family that sticks together…I actually don’t know how to finish that sentence. Hopefully Big Red goes to rehab and gets himself cleaned up, emerging one day soon to write the follow-up to Junta. The other option is going to jail and getting bent over and Buffalo Bill’d.
Make sure to watch the video in that WNYT link above, it’s probably the most surreal thing we’ve ever seen: Watching Trey leave the courthouse with his family — not even squirrel turds are nuttier than that shit. It’s like a spoof.
