KFAN's Puffy arrested for Crack

113 posts in this topic

Just saw this on the news. very sad. Meth is a terrible drug. I wish puffy the best and I hope he can come thru this ok. I guess this explains why he was gone for a month earlier this year. Must have tried to go to treatment to get help. My thoughts and prayers are with him.

Wow, I wouldn't have thought someone like him getting into meth. I have personally seen several peoples lives ruined by meth including a family member. It is the pure evil in my opinion. I hope he can one of the few who can kick it.

That is a shock. I know he's a rube but I enjoy listening to him. P.A. just loves to listen to his own voice- I could do w/out him... Best wishes Puffy...

That's too bad for him.

Felony possession, more than 6 grams. I'm no drug runner, but that seems like a lot. Intent to sell probably.

I guess we know his weight loss program now.

That stuff is nasty. I've seen some people crash and burn on it. I bet if it was 6 grams, it was personal. I believe though it's a felony to have any powdered substance, whether it's a trace or a bunch.

Just shows it can happen to anyone. Sad news for sure. I knew he was in rehab, was thinking it was alchohol or something. Meth is very evil. I think he is a good down to earth guy that has had some person problems. I don't think his marriage lasted all that long. Maybe he took it hard or is just one of those poeple that has a hard time dealing with things. I wish him the best and I hope he makes it back on the air.

From doing a little looking around, there is a lot of speculation involving this case, so what really happened won't be known until Monday when the police report is released.

He was charged with a precursor drug which could mean that he was just in possession of too much Sudafed or Ephedrine.

Either way his public Rep will take a hit for sure.

I'm a bit skepital of the Sudafed angle at this point...I'd be shocked if it was just a couple packs of Sudafed over the limit.

Get well Doob's!

"Just shows it can happen to anyone"

No, not if you have any sense at all. Only a loser would try such a drug in the first place.

No, turns out, he was charged with something illegal, that is not speculation.

If he really is in the wrong on this, I don't feel the slightest bit bad for him, his choice/mistake and his turn to pay the consequences.

ALL DRUGS are bad and should be stayed away from. That being said, we have no idea what was going on in his life. I've been down before, turned to a bottle for a while and it gets you know where. Luckily I had friends that made sure it didn't last more than a week and they picked me up and got me back on track. I've never had the feeling to turn to drugs. I've been around them in my life and have seen what they do to people. Some people hit bottom hard, maybe he hid it well and friends and family didn't pick up till it was too late. I think Meth is pretty addicting, but I'm not sure. I won't get down on Dubay cause he had some rough times and took a bad turn. I don't condone what he did, but I'm not gonna rip him to shreds for it either. It's unfortunate. How many folks does this happen to all the time and we only hear of this because he's on the radio. All these people need help, not sympathy, just help and I hope he gets it and gets his life on track.

You oviosuly haven't had any close friends or family members that have been addicted to this drug. I know some very good people that have been or are addicted to it and it's terrible. It can change someone overnight. IF puffy was arrested for meth possession I wish him the best. I hope he can get past it and put an end to his meth use. I wish the same to anyone addicted to it.

Why in the world would someone try a drug in the first place?To much time on his hands , the ole boy should have tried fishing or hunting. ANYONE who tries a drug is a total looser ( no excuses folks)

I look at drug use this way. First off the stuff, meth, coke, ect is made with nasty chemicals like acetone and all kinds of other nasty stuff in quite unclean places. Then you buy the junk from some weirdo who had the stuff in a baggie jammed down his pants. Now would anyone even consider buying a sandwich made in the same place and shoved in someone's pants? NOT ME!

Do you drink coffee? Smoke Cigs? Drink alcohol? All of these are DRUGS! They are just socially acceptable. If you do enjoy any of these drugs, you would then be calling yourself a loser!

Careful when judging people!

Funny thing is, alcohol is one of the most deadly and harmful drugs of them all, yet we can buy it everywhere and look down on those that don't drink!

I have heard from a reliable source that it is not METH and the officer used the wrong statute. This is not a big deal.

Hugely overblown

He was released without being charged according to the Star Trib.

Here is the story.

Jeff Dubay, a talk show host on KFAN (1130 AM) was arrested by Maplewood police about 10 p.m. Wednesday on suspicion of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, a felony.

He has not been charged; police are investigating.

The arrest occurred after Dubay, driving west on state Hwy. 36, turned north onto English Street in Maplewood, Police Chief David Thomalla said Friday.

Because the case still is under investigation, he added, police were providing no details about why the vehicle was stopped, or what drug might be involved.

Dubay was booked into the Ramsey County jail, and later released pending further investigation. Police hope to complete the investigation next week, the chief said.

Dubay co-hosts the "PA and Dubay Show" with Paul Allen weekdays from 9 a.m.-noon. He also co-hosts Vikings post-game shows on KFAN and is on the air for Gophers hockey games on FSN North.

He has not been on KFAN since Wednesday and did not appear on FSN North this weekend, either.

No mention of meth, and he wasn't charged. It could be something as minor has having perscription medicine in a bottle that is not properly labeled. I think we should wait for the facts to come out before the judging begins.

Whether overblown or not, what's done is done, and happening right after coming out of rehab and all the other stuff with FSN (refs).

I think he's done.

and.....if you look around there are plenty of reports that specifically call out Meth. Those could be wrong though, but they are out there.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
