Wes Scantlin Arrested After Drunken, In-Flight Ruckus

by at . Comments

Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin was arrested at an Austin, Texas, airport for allegedly becoming drunkenly combative with a flight attendant.

According to Austin P.D. sources, Scantlin got into a verbal argument with a flight attendant over alcohol while on board a flight to Los Angeles.

Security says Scantlin was upset because the flight crew wouldn't sell him booze.

Scantlin's was bound for L.A. but the flight was re-routed to Austin's Bergstrom International Airport for an emergency stop; Scantlin was booted off.

The rocker was arrested and booked for public intoxication, and he could also face additional federal charges of interfering with a flight crew.

If a judge determines that Scantlin caused a mid-air ruckus, he could face prison time for a cocaine charge he is currently on probation for.

As well as for public intoxication and interfering with a flight crew, natch.

I saw POM in NH last night and while the rest of the band was perfect, Wes was hammered and totally sucked. He was crouched in a fetal position for like 3 songs.
