Arrest Warrant Issued For Former Warrant Singer Jani Lane
Former Warrant frontman Jani Lane was a no-show for two recent court appearances, and now there’s an active bench warrant out for his arrest, according to reports. Lane was scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles court on Feb. 23, a date stemming from his 2009 DUI conviction. Lane was expected to prove to the judge that he’s finished alcohol classes and community service.
But Lane was nowhere to be seen. So the judge rescheduled the hearing for Feb. 24, giving Lane a second chance before a warrant was issued. Of course, Lane didn’t make it to the rescheduled court date either. So now he’s considered a wanted man.
TMZ.com reached out to Lane’s lawyer, who claims his client’s been in the hospital and won’t be able to make it to court until next week. Lane was arrested last June after he allegedly hit a parked car in the Woodland Hills area of Los Angeles. He was detained after refusing to submit to a sobriety test and pled no contest to one count of misdemeanor DUI a month later.
A month before his arrest, Lane was on ‘The Johnny Dare Morning Show’ and discussed his path to sobriety, saying, “It’s just a matter of deciding you’re done, in my opinion. I mean, that probably oversimplifies it, but really — really and truly — you have to go, ‘You know what? I’m done with this. I don’t like feeling like this, I don’t like living like this.’ And it’s also nice to get the creativity back, which is impossible to flow when you’re unconscious.”
