(Newser) – Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page has been busted on cocaine charges, the Canadian Press reports. The singer for the Toronto-based band, which recently released a CD for children, Snacktime, was caught with drugs in an apartment in upstate New York, according to authorities. Page, 38, posted $10,000 bail and is due in court later this week. He also posted bond for a woman arrested with him.

“We cannot comment because the matter is before the courts, but we are confident that Steven will be completely exonerated,” said Page’s manager. “Until that time, it’s business as usual for the Barenaked Ladies.”
