We have just learned that Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland has been arrested for DUI. We cannot sit here and tell you were are entirely stunned by the news. Guy is a little out there.
Weiland has long battled substance abuse and was arrested after crashing his car and failing sobriety tests on November 11 in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, the California Highway Patrol said.
No one was injured in the accident.
The musician was booked at the Van Nuys jail and refused to take a blood or urine test. He posted $40,000 bail and is due in court December 13.
Weiland has yet to be formally charged by the L.A. City Attorney's office.
The former Stone Temple Pilots singer is no stranger to legal trouble over the years. He was jailed for drug offenses in the 1990s and then some.
He was busted for buying crack in 1995, domestic violence in 2001, DUI in 2003, and allegedly trashed a hotel room while brawling with wife Mary Weiland.
Mary Weiland, who was arrested and booked for investigation of felony arson vandalism after allegedly setting fire to some of her husband's clothes, later issued a statement saying her husband was "simply trying to help calm me down."
In July, Scott Weiland claimed he was past his troubles, saying, "There's definitely a Cleaver sense about our household."
