Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin Arrested, This Time for Vandalism
It’s been about two and a half months since Puddle of Mudd lead singer Wes Scantlin made headlines so it’s about time he did something to remind people he’s still around. So what kind of trouble is he in now?
Scantlin was arrested last night (July 24) for allegedly vandalizing his neighbor’s property, using a sledge hammer and a buzz saw in an attempt to remove the neighbor’s wall, which Scantlin believed was infringing on his property at his Los Angeles home. Police arrived on scene and arrested the 41-year-old Scantlin on charges of felony vandalism. This isn’t the first conflict between Scantlin and his neighbor; it’s believed that the two of them have been feuding for a while, presumably over the property line.
With his latest arrest, Scantlin continues his downward spiral, hopefully nearing the bottom. He has already been arrested twice this year, first for warrants involving driving with a suspended license and his 2012 cocaine possession, and then a week after for becoming physically abusive in public with his ex-wife. The craziness doesn’t stop there though, jump back to 2012 and things only seem worse for Scantlin, who divorced his wife, was charged with public intoxication on a Jet Blue flight, arrested for felony cocaine possession and hit with $60,000 in back tax payments. Not a good last couple years for the singer.
