Although he somehow kept it under wraps for nearly a month, it was discovered that Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin was arrested after police discovered narcotics on him.

Things seem to be spiraling out of 'Control' for Puddle of Mudd's Wes Scantlin. A couple of months ago we reported that Scantlin and his super-hot wife were getting a divorce, then it was dicovered that he owes about $45,000 in back taxes to the federal government and a little more than $17,000 to the State of California. As if that wasn't enough, it appears that Scantlin was arrested on drug possession charges last month.

TMZ reports that 39-year old rocker was pulled over for a traffic violation in Culver City, California on January 12th. After police suspected that Scantlin was intoxicated, a search uncovered some sort of powdery substance and pills in his possession. He was arrested at around 3:00a and booked under felony possession of a controlled substance and made bail to the tune of $10,000 hours later.
