Troubled singer charged with drug possession offences for the second time in six months after being stopped for traffic violation

Sebastian Bach

Behind bars: Sebastian Bach

Sebastian Bach has been arrested again.

The troubled singer was pulled over by police in Monmouth County, New Jersey, early on Tuesday morning, following a minor traffic violation.

Cops searched his car and found less than 50 grams of cannabis and drug paraphernalia.

He spent a few hours behind bars before being released, and will face trial in the coming months.

It’s the second time in six months the former Skid Row frontman has been jailed. In November he found himself behind bars after a bar brawl. Police were called to the premises in his home town of Peterborough, Canada, and charged him with assault and mischief plus possession of two grams of cannabis.

Bach, 43, was re-arrested immediately after his release because of an outstanding warrant over a smashed mirror in a strip club.

In January he announced he and his wife of 18 years were to divorce, and earlier this week blamed lies written about him in books and online for the split.

In February he lashed out at a fan via Twitter after an unexplained face-to-face confrontation and said: “I have been going through complete misery since last April.”
