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."
