We’ve officially hit the stage of American Idol competition where skeletons are starting to tumble out of closets... Star has just revealed a shocker about a favorite Top 12 Idol contestant Stefano Langone: The super-talented crooner was allegedly arrested for a DUI.

According to Star, only a year after narrowly avoiding death in a car accident involving a drunk driver, Stefano was pulled over by a Washington State Patrol trooper for speeding and changing lanes without signaling. Star is reporting that he registered above the state’s legal alcohol limit on a preliminary breath test and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. If you remember, during the Idol segment where Stefano’s life-threatening accident was described, drunk driving was downplayed as a factor in the crash. We can only wonder if this report will seriously hurt Stefano’s chances of advancing in the competition.

In perhaps one of the strangest twists to this story, the police officer who reportedly arrested Stefano says the Idol finalist sang to himself while being taken into the station for booking. So sad!
