American Idol” contestant Stefano Langone might be a little bit of a hypocrite: After tearfully talking in his audition about a narrow scrape with death in a 2009 drunken driver-related car crash, it turns out Langone himself was nabbed for DUI just a year after the incident.

Star magazine writes Langone was busted by a Washington State Patrol trooper for “speeding and changing lanes without signaling.” Langone then failed a field sobriety test and was arrested.

“While en route [to police headquarters], Langone began singing,” the arresting trooper said in his report, which Star obtained.

Stefano competed as part of the top 13 on ‘Idol’ last week. See Langone’s audition here, where he talks about the accident that “changed my life, unfortunately for the worse.”
