It looks like the legal issues continue for troubled Puddle Of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin.

TMZ reports that after stepping offstage following a Puddle Of Mudd gig at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, California, Scantlin was “subdued by bail bondsmen and cops.”

The singer was apparently arrested for missing a court hearing that was set to address an incident in which Scantlin reportedly trashed a house—a house that he lost in 2015 to foreclosure—earlier this year. TMZ reports that this was Scantlin’s second consecutive no-show in the case, and it resulted in a judge raising his bail to $250k.  

The troubled singer has been involved in a series of bizarre events over the past few years including onstage fits and four arrests in 2015.

Earlier this month, Scantlin was involved in a large police standoff. TMZ reported that police were informed of a burglary taking place in a car in the singer's driveway.

When they arrived, Scantlin ran into his house and refused to come out, despite police orders. The police called backup and ended up with 30 officers in front of the home with rifles out.

Law enforcement eventually broke the door down, and Scantlin was arrested on a previous warrant. The supposed "burglary" was reportedly just Scantlin and friends trying to jumpstart a car.
