Puddle Of Mudd Frontman Charged With Cocaine Possession
Puddle Of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has been charged with cocaine possession, according to reports. According to US gossip website TMZ, Scantlin, who is 39 years old, has been charged with possession of a controlled substance as well as being under the influence of a controlled substance and driving without a license. Scantlin, who has already pleaded not guilty to the charges, will appear in court again later this week. If convicted on all counts, he faces up to four and a half years in prison. Scantlin was arrested on January 12 this year after being pulled over at 3am in Culver City, California by police for an unknown traffic offence. Police then searched his car and are reported to have found a controlled substance, which allegedly consisted of powder and pills. There is no mention of pills in the charge. Puddle Of Mudd most recently released a covers album, which was titled "Re(disc)overed". That came out in August 2011 and included covers of AC/DC's "TNT", Elton John's "Rocket Man", The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter", Free's "All Right Now" and Stevie Nicks' "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around". Thanks for the report to NME.com.
