Artie Lange has revealed that he was recently arrested in France after a scuffle with police.

The comedian spoke about his brush with the law upon his return to his radio programme The Nick and Artie Show this week.

Lange's outburst started during an argument with his girlfriend on a recent holiday in Paris.

His girlfriend apparently chose to walk away and entered a theatre with another friend, prompting Lange to allegedly shout: "Get out here, you f'ing c**t."

Lange reportedly grew even more upset when police arrived and attempted to calm him down, eventually leading to a scuffle.

The comic was subdued and taken to a local police precinct, but specific charges are not yet known.

The former Howard Stern Show star has since returned to the US and insists he was sober during the Paris incident.

Lange has battled substance abuse throughout his adult life and most recently completed an intensive rehab programme in 2010.
