Wes Scantlin arrested for drunk driving

Posted by on July 27, 2015

So far the antics of Puddle of Mudd vocalist Wes Scantlin have only led to angry fans. This time it’s amazing he didn’t kill himself or anyone else around him. According to TMZ, Scantlin was recently arrested in Minnesota for drunk driving and, “leading cops on a 100 MPH chase.”

From TMZ:

“The arresting officer said in his report … when he finally pulled Scantlin over, he was slurring his words and smelled of alcohol.

The officer says he then administered a preliminary breathalyzer test and Scantlin blew a .310 … a whopping FOUR TIMES the legal limit.”

Puddle of Mudd cancelled a show last month because Scantlin forgot to get on an airplane, and then deleted most of the contents of their Facebook page a few days later. This comes after being arrested in Denver, and throwing a mic into the crowd in 2014. It’s been quite a fall for Puddle of Mudd since their second album Come Clean was certified 3x Platinum back in 2003.
