Barenaked Ladies' Page faces drug case

Barenaked Ladies singer and guitarist Steven Page is due back in an upstate New York courtroom Tuesday to answer cocaine possession charges.

The 38-year-old Toronto musician was arrested in July while visiting two women at their suburban Syracuse apartment. Police were checking on a car they found parked across the sidewalk with its driver's side door open outside the apartment.

Authorities charged Page with fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony that carries a maximum penalty of up to 15 years in prison.

Page's case has been adjourned several times but a court clerk says it is on the calendar for Tuesday evening.
