Prosecutor to Scott Weiland:

You Were Hopped Up!

12/12/2007 6:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Scott Weiland has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs with a prior conviction, and with an allegation that he refused a chemical test as required by law.

In a statement from Los Angeles City Attorney spokesperson Frank Mateljan, Scott faces "maximum penalty of one year county jail and a $1000 fine, and a minimum penalty eight days in jail (because of the prior conviction and the refusal to take a drug test). His car could also be impounded for up to 30 days. "

He will be arraigned tomorrow in a Los Angeles County court.

On November 21, the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer was arrested, when he crashed his car while driving on an L.A. highway.

A rep for Velvet Revolver tells TMZ that the band's show tonight at L.A.'s Gibson Amphitheater is still going on as scheduled.

"Time to take a ride, it leaves today, no conversation." Great lyrics for doing time.

GEEEEZ. You figure with all the money the celebs have they would take their stash, their crack pipe, their Jack Daniels, their ho ("he-she" if you're Kid Rock) and get into the back of a limo or hole up in some cheap motel. But no matter what IT AIN'T COOL TO DRIVE UNDER THE INFLUENCE YOU FREAK'N IDIOTS.

What a total idiot. He was one of the greatest frontmen around, but he just pisses it all away. I hope he does some seriuos time this time. He needs to wake up and realize what he has. I was never really an STP fan, but Velvet Revolver is really good. Does any good story start with " then I started doing heroin ". I just can't believe people are so dumb.
