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.

A couple of days in lockdown adds character, he'll be okay.

Too bad jails are so overcrowded now because 5 days is just NOT long enough to be locked up for putting every driver on the road and every pedestrian NEAR the road in jeopardy because you are too much of a self serving A$$ to not drive drunk.

On another note, WTF is up with these losers that type FIRST when they are only SECOND and often third, fourth, fifth or eighth. It seems to me they need to stop skipping school and attend so they can learn to count.

He is a worthless junkie. Velvet Revolver sucks. Stone Temple Pilots were good before he became such a hopeless drug addict. Alcohol are the least of this guy's problems. He is a heroin junkie. What about when he drives while doing that? 8 days or 8 years are not enough for this sick bastard.

I agree Velvet Revolver sucks. They kicked him out, anyway. Hope he gets the help he so desperately needs. Maybe he could speak with Robert Downey, Jr.
