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.
