Steven Page, the lead singer of band Barenaked Ladies, was arrested in New York last Friday, July 11 for allegedly possessing cocaine. According to the explanation given by the authorities, Page was busted Friday morning at about 2 A.M. along with two females after police noticed a suspicious car with its driver's side door left open in an apartment in the village of Fayette and found a man, Page, and woman, identified as Stephanie Ford, in a nearby apartment with a white capsule in front of them.

"As [the officers] approached the apartment they saw people in the window sitting at a table and it looked like they were engaged in something. There was a white capsule and a white powdery substance that later tested positive for cocaine," Capt. Bill Bleyle with the Manlius Police Department in New York State explained. Both Page and Ford were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.

Page, who was also charged with pot possession, then was released from the prison after posting a $10,000 bail. He reportedly also posted the $5,000 bail for Ford. No words about the other woman who was also involved in the case.

Following Page's arrest a rep for the band told online gossip site TMZ, "We can not comment because the matter is before the court. We are confident that out client Steven will be completely exonerated. Until that time, it is business as usual for the Barenaked Ladies."

Page himself is scheduled to appear in court on July 17.

I think Steve Page's behaviour is indicative of how some stars think they deserve "special" treatment and are immune from the laws which protect society. Clearly, when he GOT that million dollars he sang about, he decided to blow it on coke and post bail. His behaviour is selfish and irresponsible considering the amount of power and influence he KNOWS he has with the youth of today. He is not a good representative of Canadians. He is a disgrace and deserves to be made an example of. No special treatment for his moron. Give him the full sentence and give him a taste of some non-fattening justice.

PS: The squeaky clean, law-abiding, morallly-sound reputation of The Barenaked Ladies was their SCHTICK. Page sullied not only his own name but has dashed the hopes of Canadian youth and now is down of the ladder of being a "mentor" and representative of all that is good. With his SELFISH indulgence of the very substance which is instrumental in the deterioration of society, Page has entered the colloquial domain of being just another big headed star with a taste for CRIME. A taste of the US prison system will remind him that NO ONE is immune from the justice.

He deserves to be in an american jail for at least 10 years. He has disgusted us Canadians, and church going people. Shame Shame Shame. Tisk Tisk Tisk. How can he represent his country.
