Scott Weiland finally admitted to what everyone who watched the AMAs this week already knew -- that he still hits the bottle ... hard.
On his way to Vegas, the man who's been in and out of drug rehab AND who got a DUI last year, told us, "I still drink, I'm not perfect ... you know?" It's too bad.
Hours later, cameras caught Weiland with a drink in his hand at the Lavo Lounge at the Palazzo. No word on what was in that drink.
