Former Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland is not in jail, despite a police incident and media reports on the arrest and incarceration of Scott Weiland.

Say what now? Buckle up, because this is absolutely ridiculous:

Some guy arrested for stealing razors at Rite Aid and caught in possession of meth declared himself to be Weiland, and furnished police with Weiland's info.

He knew Scott's date of birth, and is a dead-ringer for the star.

On Thursday, as news reports started breaking that Weiland was behind bars, the real Scott Weiland shared a video of himself, clearly not in jail.

"I just got done reading something very interesting," a stone-faced Scott said. "A nice piece of fiction saying I was in jail and have been for months."

"I've actually been touring, writing and recording, this is the studio we're in right now. So all I have to say to our fans is don't worry, don't fret, it's a lie."

After that video went live, an L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. official said he was "definitely in custody. We did a physical check on that inmate and he is in custody."

Scott Weiland has been fired by Stone Temple Pilots, the band he fronted for more than two decades. This news begs the following questions, among others:

  1. Stone Temple Pilots are actually still around?
  2. What could Weiland do to get fired NOW?

It's true in any event. The group says in a statement, "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland."

That's it. No further explanation given.

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."

The wife of Velvet Revolver singer Scott Weiland was arrested and booked for investigation of felony arson vandalism after allegedly burning his clothes outside their Southern California home, police said.

The alleged torching took place on Saturday after the two had fought at a nearby luxury hotel, which the couple left vandalized (Johnny Depp would undoubtedly be proud).

Mary Weiland, 31, was taken into custody after officers responded to a call on Saturday night that a female was setting clothes on fire at their home, said Sgt. Mathew Ferguson.

Police found a trash can full of smoldering clothes. Scott Weiland, 39, the former Stone Temple Pilots frontman, told police that his wardrobe was worth at least $10,000.

If only someone would torch Britney Spears' hideous wardrobe. Anyway. The alleged vandalism occurred at the boutique Graciela Hotel on Pass Avenue in Burbank earlier Saturday.

"Both rooms had damage and items scattered, broken plates and things. It was looking definitely like items were deliberately destroyed," Ferguson said.

Damage was said to be in excess of $400, or roughly the amount of money Tara Conner used to spend on alcohol per evening.

Once officers arrived, Mary Weiland, who was at the hotel with the couple's two children, Lucy, 4, and Noah, 6, voluntarily went to the police station to give a statement. Scott Weiland and his attorney later appeared to give a statement as well.

"She is a suspect in the vandalism. He is not," Ferguson said.

Well, that's fairly clear cut. Much like that sleaze bag Howard K. Stern being a suspect in murdering Anna Nicole Smith, while Larry Birkhead is not.

No charges were filed, though police say the hotel owners would have to decide if they wished to prosecute Mary Weiland for vandalism.

Mary will probably get a light sentence of community service. Maybe she can get some pointers from Naomi Campbell?
