Former Phish frontman Trey Anastasio was pulled over by police while driving in upstate New York this weekend.

According to police, he was driving erratically near the Vermont border when they pulled him over at approximately 3:30am on Friday (December 15).

Police charged Anastasio, who was driving with a suspended New York license, with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and driving while intoxicated-drugs.

He was released and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
