Artie Lange Hospitalized for Attempted Suicide

Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange was hospitalized over the weekend after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt. His mother found him in his Hoboken apartment covered in blood after suffering six "hesitation wounds" and three deep plunges. She called 911 and surgeons were able to save his life despite the blood loss.

Stern has spoken little about Lange's condition, but did say, "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He's a good man. Don't forget how great he is." Lange has had battles with addiction in the past, to which Stern commented, "We all have our demons."
