Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin Walks Offstage, Is Immediately Arrested
For twice missing a court date pertaining to a prior arrest
Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has faced a slew of problems and controversy over the past few years — it’s a list too varied and unbelievable to attempt to sum up here, but his tagged page on our site should catch you up — and the drama only continued over the weekend at his show in Hermosa Beach, California.
The cause of the arrest stems from the fact that the troubled singer missed a court hearing that was set to address a house that Scantlin reportedly trashed earlier this year — his former house, in fact, one that he lost in 2015 to foreclosure. TMZ reports that this was Scantlin’s second consecutive no-show in the case, so a judge raised his bail to $250,000 and the musician was subsequently locked up on Saturday night post-gig. He remains in custody.
