According to Rolling Stone, Puddle Of Mudd's Wes Scantlin was arrested last week. The singer was booked for possession of a controlled substance after he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop in Beverly Hills, California. Scantlin also had a warrant out for his arrest. This marks Scantlin’s fourth arrest in 2015.
Scantlin was charged with a misdemeanor and bailed out for $51,000.
The singer was also arrested in Denver for riding an airport carousel, in Minnesota after a high-speed car chase (during which his blood alcohol level was four times the state’s legal limit), and in South Dakota for driving under the influence and marijuana possession this past year alone. Scantlin has been arrested multiple times in previous years as well.
Puddle Of Mudd hails from Missouri and has released six albums. Come Clean, their major label debut, went triple platinum, selling over five million copies.
