Puddle Of Mudd's Lead Singer Causes Plane To Make An Emergency Landing

| Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteLegal Matters

Puddle of Mudd may have rose to the top of modern rock last decade, but that's not stopping the lead singer's life from falling apart in this one.

Wes Scantlin narrowly avoided jail time in July after pleading guilty to a felony cocaine possession charge. In order to stay of out the slammer, the rock star was supposed to attend a probationary drug counseling program AND stay out of trouble for 18 months.

Well, that plan didn't work out too tell. He's gone and committed ANOTHER crime by interfering with a flight crew and forcing an airplane en route to El Lay to make an emergency landing in Austin, Texas.

He was apparently acting obnoxiously drunk, he got in a verbal fight with a flight attendant who refused to sell him more booze.

The troubled musician was arrested for public intoxication upon landing and could also face up to 20 years in prison (on top of his cocaine possession charge) and a maximum fine of $250,000 if charged for interference with a flight crew.

What a puddle of mess!

    How come his COURT ORDERED 12-Step religious AA/NA treatment program FAILED?

    Where was the "HIGHER POWER" that's suppose to keep him from drinking/using?

    A REAL "HIGHER POWER" would work 100% of the time.

    And this is why I hate flying! It's usually some drunk bastard that makes me wait on the Tarmac while they puke on themselves or get so belligerent that we need to wait for them to get pulled of the plane. This world is filled with self important arrogant fools that ruin basic everyday necessity for the rest of us that just want to get to work and play by the rules. From now on when someone pulls this crap, they should be punished and banned from all air transportation. Maybe a few road trips on a greyhound will teach them some manners!

    I was at his show the night before this and O M G… he was a hot mess. He couldn't sing his own songs and he interrupted Seether's act. Twice. Not surprised at ALL!
