Former radio host Jeff Dubay arrested for meth possession


Former radio host Jeff Dubay has been arrested for possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia on Wednesday, according to the Washington County jail roster,

WCCO reports that the former KFAN host has been charged with fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance.

Dubay, 47, was arrested at the intersection of 80th Street and Ideal Avenue at about 4:52 p.m. Wednesday. According to the complaint, Dubay was traveling westbound at about 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.

The Star Tribune reports that Dubay also had a warrant out for his arrest from Wright County for driving without insurance.

The newspaper said that according to the complaint, officers found two hypodermic needles in his pants pocket and 31 used needles in a bag on the front seat along with a piece of paper that had a small amount of meth.

Dubay was fired from KFAN in 2008 after he was arrested for cocaine possession in Maplewood, and KARE 11 reports that he was unable to complete two separate rehab stints. He also failed at least a dozen drug tests while failing to show up for about as many, the news station notes.

According to the Star Tribune, in 2010, he was ordered to spend 87 days in the Ramsey County workhouse after he admitted to using cocaine.

In 2012 he was interviewed by KARE 11's Randy Shaver, and said that he had been clean for a year and a half.

He returned to the airwaves on ESPN 1500, but was let go after one year in a cost-cutting move.

Most recently Dubay has been hosting a sports-oriented podcast – others filled in for him Wednesday evening.
