Former KFAN jock Jeff Dubay flunks out of drug program again
Jeff Dubay, the former KFAN radio jock, is headed back to the Ramsay County workhouse after admitting that he used cocaine -- again -- in violation -- again -- of his parole agreement.
He's been sentenced by District Judge Joanne Smith to another 87 days in the program after an April 12 urine check found cocaine in his system, and he then later admitted to having used cocaine in May 17-18.
His addiction is running and ruining his life.
Dubay was originally busted in October 2008 for fifth-degree drug possession, and subsequently fired from his KFAN gig, where he hosted the midday show with Paul Allen for 10 years.
He was given a big second chance and placed into a year-long program to get clean and get his charged dismissed. But Dubay couldn't hold things together.
He was kicked out of that program and given another chance through the Substance Abuse Court, only to test positive for cocaine 12 times and fail to report for urine tests 11 times. Finally, he was sentenced to 180 days in the workhouse.
Now this. Let's hope those AA meetings do the trick.
