Twin Cities Radio: Sports Talker Jeff Dubay Busted Again

Sports radio personality Jeff Dubay was charged with felony fifth-degree methamphetamine possession Thursday after police allegedly found meth and more than 30 syringes during a traffic stop for speeding, according to

Dubay, 47, whose prior crack cocaine possession case led him to lose his job as a KFNX 100.3 FM K-FAN radio co-host, was formally charged Thursday in Washington County District Court.

According to the criminal complaint:

Dubay was stopped by police around 5 p.m. after he was clocked at 50 mph in a 35-mph zone near a school. Dubay was driving after suspension and had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant out of Wright County for no insurance.

During a search as part of his warrant arrest, Dubay was found in possession of two unused hypodermic needles in his pocket and a small baggie that contained a trace amount of methamphetamine.

Police also found 31 used syringes in a computer bag in his car, the complaint says. One of the syringes contained a liquid believed to be a controlled substance.

A longtime co-host on sports radio station KFAN, Dubay was convicted of crack cocaine possession in 2009. He was fired from KFAN after the arrest. He later was hired to co-host a show on KSTP 1500 AM ESPN, but in 2014 was let go in what the station described as a cost-cutting move.

He runs a sports-themed podcast called the Jeff Dubay Show.

The Twins batboy in the late 1980s and early 1990s whose rapid-fire speaking style has been a signature of his career, Dubay has been hosting a sports-oriented podcast. Others filled in for Dubay during his Wednesday evening live podcast.

In an interview on WCCO Radio in July 2012, Dubay said he started experimenting with crack during a difficult divorce.
