According to an official, Lange, 51, is "currently doing well and following the rules."

“Lange is non-compliant,” officials told “Consequently, he will be taken into custody by officers from the Essex County Sheriff’s Office."

“All the stories gave the impression he was doing great, but that is not the case,” the official added of the star, who often posted happy videos from his community service work.

“He’s had to have medical assistance several times already for his diabetes,” the insider explained.

In his latest mugshot following his arrest, Lange's nose appeared completely busted.

He remained in jail at the Essex County Correctional Facility for three weeks before being transferred back to rehab.

But for now, it seems Howard Stern's former sidekick is pushing through and staying clean.

Though he has largely tried to avoid the subject, Stern recently opened up in a Rolling Stone interview about his former pal.

"I’m very dismayed about where he’s at. I do care, but for a whole bunch of reasons that relationship had to stop,” Stern, 65, admitted. “Artie was on the show for 10 years. He’s a fantastic comedian. There’s nobody who could have sat in like that."
