Artie Lange has been placed in protective custody following his arrest Tuesday night for missing too many court dates, has exclusively learned.

According to a law enforcement source, the 50-year-old addict is "under constant supervision" and "isolated" in his cell at the Essex County Jail in his native New Jersey.

“He had a bench warrant out and his warrant came to our attention,” Officer Kevin Lynch of the Essex County Sheriff’s department told “We knew he was home, and we arrested him around 6:40 pm without incident.”

Lange has worried family, friends and fans with his bizarre behavior in recent months. Just last week, cops rushed to the podcast host's home after he posted a disturbing selfie on Twitter.
