An upstate New York television station is reporting former Phish lead singer Trey Anastasio had something extra in his car when he was busted with unprescribed painkillers a few weeks back:

Ernest “Trey” Anastasio, the lead singer of the rock-jam band Phish, was in court in Whitehall Wednesday for his arraignment on misdemeanor drug charges. The 42-year-old musician was smiling as he left court with his wife and children by his side.

But NewsChannel 13 has learned Anastasio had heroin in his car and it appears the district attorney is ready to up the charges against the former Phish front man to a felony.

We’re guessing that the “But I was only getting in the proper frame of mind to cover Up The Bracket” defense won’t fly here.
