Puddle of Mudd Singer Wes Scantlin Arrested in Minnesota
The Puddle of Mudd's singer faces DWI and fleeing police charges
Wes Scantlin, singer in the band Puddle of Mudd, was arrested early Sunday by a sheriff’s duepty in southern Minnesota, The Associated Press reports.
The singer was arrested after allegedly leading police on a car chase on a rural highway, reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour. After he was caught, the AP reports that police administered a preliminary breath test that registered Scantlin’s blood-alcohol level at 0.31 percent – almost four times the legal limit.
Scantlin appeared in court on Monday on a felony charge of fleeing police in a motor vehicle, refusing to submit to a chemical test, and DWI.
The 43-year-old was later released on bail.
According to the Star Tribune, Scantlin had a show over the weekend in Royaltown, a city about 100 miles north of where the incident occurred.
