Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin Arrested for Vandalism
The troubling year for Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin continues, as the rock singer has just been arrested for allegedly vandalizing a Los Angeles neighbor’s property with a buzz saw and a sledgehammer.
TMZ reports that the 41-year-old Scantlin was busted for destroying property while on his neighbor’s patio. The ‘Blurry’ singer apparently used a buzz saw (also known as a circular saw), although it’s not clear what exact property the rocker destroyed. He also allegedly struck a brick wall with a sledgehammer, claiming the neighbor’s wall infringed on his own property. He was arrested on charges of felony vandalism when police officers arrived at the scene.
Scantlin’s arrest is the latest in a series of legal problems that have plagued the rock frontman over the past couple of years. In summer 2012, Scantlin pled guilty to cocaine possession and was ordered into a drug counseling program. Later in the year, he was busted for public intoxication on an airplane, but later cleared of those charges.
