Velvet Revolving Door

Weiland Arrested Again

12/3/2007 4:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that rocker Scott Weiland has been arrested, again, for DUI. Shocker, we know.

The Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer was driving on an L.A. highway around 6:15 PM on November 21 when he crashed his car. While the California Highway Patrol was investigating the non-injury wreck, they noticed Weiland appeared to be impaired. (Um ... ya think?) According to the police report, Weiland failed sobriety tests and refused to take a blood or urine test. He was booked for "driving under the influence of a drug. "

He was released on $40,000 bail and will be back in court on December 13.

Weiland is no stranger to run-ins with the law. He was busted for buying crack in 1995, domestic violence in 2001, DUI on his birthday in 2003, and as TMZ first reported, allegedly trashed a hotel room while brawling with his wife. His wife later issued a statement saying her hubby was "simply trying to help calm me down."

A rep for Weiland said in a statement that the signer was involved in a "minor accident," but denies he was driving under the influence. "Scott was not driving under the influence of a drug, legal or illegal," Kristine Ashton-Magnuson said. "He voluntarily took a breathalyzer test which the defense believes registers well within the legal limit. He is anxious to get to court ... and clear this matter up."

I am so damn bummed! Scott Weiland is so freaking talented. I met him not that long ago at a concert and he seemed like someone who has it together. I hope he gets clean soon!!

Frickin' MORON! His ignorance is only exceeded by his arrogance. Drunk driving kills people - like innocent children, somebody's grandma and grandpa, kids working their way through college, people trying to make a living working a crappy job. The world doesn't revolve around you, you skinny cheeseball. Hope he loses his license, his car and his ugly ass goes to jail. Why aren't the cops ever caught beatin' the crap outta frickin' idiots like this numbnuts?

VR's sophomore release "Libertad" was d.o.a., the other VR members are starting to get serious about maybe doing GnR reunions and instead of pulling together a quickly unraveling situation, Weiland gets busted again.

Expect dissolution of Audioslave proportions to commence soon.

Very sad. Saw this guy with Velvet Revolver last summer and he just blew me away. An incredible front man.

In the Guitar Hero's III advertisement, when Slash breaks out of the guys skin, he is playing "Slither" from the first Velvet Revolver CD, Contraband. "Slither" is a couple of years old....and yes, the band knew what they were getting when they signed Mister Weiland on to play with the band, but Scotty isn't staying clean. Time for Duff to take him out to the desert of Eastern Washington State again to get him back on track...............having to cancel the beginning of their "Libertad" tour should be enough of a kick in the wallet to get the bands attention that Scotty is in trouble, again.

Waste of talent, too bad. He is really skinny, is he really anorexic, or is he just skinny due to drug use?

His music has always sucked. Gee let's just keep repeating the course of a song and make that a song. Poor Man's Eddie Vedder. The drugs are doing wonders. Keep it up. Bring back Heroin Chic.

Years ago he was on the show "Politically Incorrect" and he said he was anorexic. Could be he substituted one addiction for another.

I live in Pasadena CA. Every time I drive down Colorado Blvd. towards Arcadia I see the Pasada Motel. I remember that back in the '90s Scott was busted there in the middle of the night trying to score some dope. I've been a fan of his and I hope that he gets his sobriety right one of these days. Keep trying, man. Everyday is a new day!!!

Alcoholism/drug addiction is a killer disease. He needs to surrender.
