Former Phish frontman arrested in Whitehall

Anastasio charged with DWI, possession of drugs

WHITEHALL, Dec. 15
By MARK MULHOLLAND North Country News Chief

The former lead singer and guitarist of Phish is in trouble with the law in Washington County. Trey Anastasio—whose real first name is Ernest—was arrested Friday morning in Whitehall.

Police charged him with driving while under the influence of drugs.

Anastasio is the 40-year-old front man to the wildly popular rock jam band. Phish started back in 1983 at the University of Vermont in Burlington.

Anastasio was apparently headed to Vermont at about 3:30 a.m. when Whitehall police arrested him. Police stopped Anastasio for failing to keep right of the center in line. They say he was under the influence of prescription drugs and had a bottle filled with hydrocodone, Percocet and Xanax.

The drugs were prescribed to someone else. So police charged him with criminal possession of a controlled substance. He was also charged with driving with a suspended license.

Since Phish stopped performing Anastasio has enjoyed a successful solo career. The police chief described Anastasio as a "very nice guy."

He was released from police custody and is scheduled to re-appear early next month.

Anastasio Arrested In Whitehall
Former Phish frontman charged with DWI-drugs, driving with suspended license, possessing prescription drugs

By BOB GARDINIER, Staff writer


Trey Anastasio
WHITEHALL -- Former Phish frontman Trey Anastasio was arrested by village police early this morning and charged with DWI-drugs after they stopped his car for failure to keep right.

Ernest Anastasio was stopped at 3:30 a.m. by Patrolman Andrew Mija who said the musician was observed to be under the influence of a narcotic substance after failing field testing, Patrolman Jeff Whalen said this morning.

Anastasio lives in Vermont, which is just over the border from this Washington County community. Whalen said he had a suspended driver's license in New York and allegedly was found with an assortment of prescription medications including hydrocodone, Percocet and Xanax, which were prescribed for another person.

Anastasio was charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and DWI - drugs, Whalen said. He was released from custody with appearance tickets for a later date.

Shocking that one of the 88 crew tards puts that up as their av.


This is too bad to see; from all his interviews post-Phish it seemed like he was really set on trying to get himself clean and sober.

The possesion of a controlled substance charges are felonies, and either charged by the pill or by the container...its either 1 to 5 or 1 to 10 on each instance.

Might not hurt to check to see if those tickets are refundable.

ahh, he's already been charged and he was not charged with one felony.

the DA could upgrade the charges, but they are not automatic felonies.

either way, he's already seen the inside of the only jail cell he will ever see.

He hasnt been charged with felonies because the stuff has to test out first, field tests on pills isnt sufficient in New York state. Of course the DA could upgrade the charges, thats how they do it, the misdemeanors can be dropped and he can be recharged with felonies up until his trial.

Just so you know.

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.

Anastasio was arrested last month on Route 4 in Whitehall after a patrolman saw him swerve over the double yellow line.

According to court records, the arresting officer said “Anastasio was hyper and his hands were shaking very badly."

Anastasio told police he'd been smoking hashish and taking pills before his arrest.

According to court documents, "Anastasio admitted...he was in an argument with his wife earlier in the day...because he was taking the pills and he had a problem."

Police searched his car and found more than a half-ounce of prescription pain killers—that's enough for a felony charge—and some anxiety medicine.

In addition, there was one item that police couldn’t identify. NewsChannel 13 has learned from law enforcement sources that Anastasio also had a quantity of heroin in the car.

Washington County's district attorney wouldn't comment on the specifics of the case, but said he plans to present it to a grand jury.

Anastasio remains free on his own recognizance. After leaving Whitehall Court with his family, they hurried into a chauffeur-driven van and drove off.

The district attorney says it is likely Anastasio will be ordered to take part in a drug re-habilitation program to avoid going to jail.
