Puddle of Mudd, Arrest: Wes Scantlin Gets Charges Dropped After Plane Incident
Puddle of Mudd‘s Wes Scantlin was cleared of an arrest in September for public intoxication after he reportedly fought with a flight attendant who wouldn’t serve him alcohol.
According to TMZ, a judge ruled there was “insufficient evidence” needed to prosecute Scantlin. The rocker insisted he was sober at the time of the incident, when his L.A.-bound plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Austin, Texas, because of Scantlin’s combative actions.
If the case proceeded, Scantlin reportedly faced jail time since he previously had been arrested for cocaine possession, a felony. With that felony charge in June, Scantlin was told to stay out of trouble for 18 months.
