Scott Weiland

Is Going to Jail

4/28/2008 5:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scott Weiland is Going to JailRock star Scott Weiland has just been sentenced to 192 hours in county jail for his November DUI arrest. This is Weiland's second DUI offense. He has until May 28 to serve the sentence.

Scott, who was not present in court today, entered a no contest plea through his attorney, Anthony Brooklier. The former Velvet Revolver singer was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program and pay almost $2,000 in fines. He will be put on a four-year summary probation.

Weiland was charged with one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of alcohol with a prior conviction, and with an allegation that he refused a chemical test as required by law. We are told he was over the legal limit of .08%, but not by much.

According to the police report, he failed the field sobriety tests and refused to take a blood or urine test. He was booked for DUI and released on $40,000 bail.

It is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING how tax evasion can get a couple of years in PRISON and a freaking DUI only gets a measley jail sentence.
Very sad

Hey #19: Slash is ONLY 2 years older than Scott Weiland, so VR is not A "nursing home band" by any means. Also, who had more hits, & sold more records, STP or G n R? That would be Guns.....too bad they always pick such whiny singers!

If you are going to form a band why would you knowingly hire
someone with a drug problem? There are probably hundreds of
people that can sing as well as Scott Weiland, have had an opportunity
to do drugs and not become drug addicts.

Good, when he screws up again they will have this second DUI on record and maybe keep in jail where he belongs. He must have a very weak constitution to continue the same path over and over. I suspect he won't learn until a drunk driver hits him or his family.
