This is just terrible.
On Thursday night, Scott Weiland was found dead on his tour bus, after going into cardiac arrest. The 48-year-old was on the road in Minnesota with his current group, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts.
On Friday, authorities arrested the musician's bandmate Tommy Black for cocaine possession. Police say there was a small amount of the substance in the room where the singer's body was found, as well as in the guitarist's portion of the bus.

Sources had said there were drugs in the vehicle at the time Scott passed, causing speculation to surface that the former frontman for the Stone Temple Pilots had died of an overdose.
However, the artist's wife, Jamie Wachtel, insists her husband hadn't been using drugs for quite a while.
The late musician's bandmate faces a 5th-degree felony charge. Our hearts are with everyone affected during this tough time.
