Robert Schimmel Arrested

Robert Schimmel, the caustic comic known for his candid talk about his health and personal problems on the Howard Stern Show, has been arrested, the Daily News reports.

Stand-up comedian Robert Schimmel was busted for allegedly beating up his wife, TMZ reported Saturday.

The X-rated funnyman was being held on $50,000 bail after cops were called to his home in Los Angeles and found his wife roughed up, the Web site said.

Schimmel, 59, is known for his off-color humor and his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which he chronicles in his new book, “Cancer on $5 a Day.”

He divorced his first wife, Vicki, three times, then married his daughter’s best friend, Melissa, who is half his age. They have two children.
