Puffy II: Next stop a jail near you

6 posts in this topic

Former KFAN-AM radio personality Jeffery Dubay flunked out of his second substance abuse program this month after a cocaine relapse. Now, he faces sentencing for a drug possession.

He will be sentenced July 21 for felony fifth-degree drug possession.

Dubay, 41, of Plymouth, tested positive for cocaine on 12 occasions — most recently June 6 — while participating in Project Remand, according to Ramsey County District Court records. He also failed to report for 11 urine tests since January.

The court issued a warrant for his arrest June 9.

Ramsey County sheriff's deputies arrested him the next day. Dubay was released on $5,000 bail two days later.

Ramsey County deputies also stopped Dubay while driving April 9 for rear-ending another vehicle, according to a criminal complaint. They cited him for driving with a suspended license, and having no proof of insurance.

The drug charge came from an Oct. 15 traffic stop in Maplewood when an officer saw him throw what looked like a yellow napkin out the window, according to a criminal complaint. The officer retrieved the item and found a small plastic bag containing a substance that tested positive as cocaine. It weighed 0.45 grams, or about 0.016 ounces.

Dubay later said he was in Maplewood to pay a drug debt of $200, the complaint stated.

He said he started using crack cocaine last year and had sought treatment. But he denied the crack was his, saying a dealer had borrowed his truck

during the weekend and left the drugs behind, according to the complaint.

The court initially placed Dubay in a diversion program. The court diversion agreement called Dubay to perform 100 hours of community service, remain law-abiding and comply with other conditions. If he complied, Dubay could have avoided jail time, with the charge dismissed after a year.

But Dubay failed to complete that program.

Dubay then qualified for the Adult Substance Abuse Court in March. He had to abstain from mood-altering drugs, comply with results of chemical assessment, and submit to random urine testing.

Substance Abuse Court is for nonviolent offenders who may avoid jail time and other sanctions by Following Strict requirements, such as treatment and community service.

His relapse terminated him from the program Friday.

Dubay's attorney Mark D. Kelly could not reached immediately Tuesday.

The former radio celebrity co-hosted "PA and Dubay" on KFAN with Paul Allen from 9 a.m. to noon weekdays. He was fired shortly after the drug charge was filed.

That's too bad. Hopefully he can get his life in order someday. Some how I doubt simply going to jail will solve his addiction. He'll likely get out and feel he needs it more then ever.

He had a good thing going on the radio. I'm sure he made very good money and only worked a few hours a day. Why would someone throw that all away for a cheap high.

Failed 12 drug tests while at rehab. My god, wouldn't you lay off the dope until you get out, if you are so determined to still do it? I know alot of people think they can beat those tests, right up until they pop positive.

I feel for him. I think he had a crappy marriage that ended and that's when this all started. Life gets hard and depression can lead to many things. I really hope he can get his life turned around.

    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
