A new video shows Puddle of Mudd vocalist Wes Scantlin performing live on stage in disturbingly poor physical condition, apparently under the influence of drugs.
In the clip, Wes looks like he lost weight, seems disoriented, barely moves on the stage, and apparently struggles to stand on his feet.
The video uploader noted: "And yes... this is what a methed-out rocker looks like..."
Back in May, Wes was arrested for skipping a court date for one of his previous arrests. In April, Wes had a stand-off with 30 heavily armed police officers and was ultimately arrested. In March 2016, Wes was left drunk and alone onstage after his whole band walked out on him for his behavior. In February 2016, Wes had an onstage meltdown by attacking a soundman during the band's show, saying that "he hates us." Also in February, Wes had an onstage meltdown. In January 2016, Wes was arrested for trashing the Hollywood Hills house he lost in foreclosure last year. In December 2015, Wes was arrested after he was pulled over by cops for expired car registration, after which the cops found a "controlled substance" in the vehicle. In July 2015, Wes was arrested for drunk driving. In April 2015, Wes was arrested for disorderly conduct at an airport for the second time. About 10 days before that, Wes had an onstage meltdown. In January 2015, Wes was arrested at an airport for taking a "joyride" at a baggage carousel. In April 2014, Wes had an onstage meltdown. In July 2014, Wes was arrested for vandalizing his neighbor's yard with a buzz-saw and a sledge hammer. In May 2013, Wes was arrested for beating up his wife. In September 2012, Wes was arrested for causing a plane to perform an emergency landing after a drunken fight with a flight attendant. In May 2012, Wes was arrested for cocaine possession.
Hopefully he gets help soon.
