Puddle of Mudd Singer Arrested

EMERGENCY LANDING

After Fight on Flight

9/4/2012 2:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin being arrested at an Austin, TX airportPuddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin was just arrested at an Austin, TX airport for allegedly becoming drunkenly combative with a flight attendant while in the air -- a rep for the Austin PD tells TMZ.

According to the Austin PD, Scantlin got into a verbal argument with a flight attendant over alcohol. It's unclear exactly what provoked the argument, but a source with airport security says Scantlin was upset because the flight crew wouldn't sell him booze.

Scantlin's flight was originally bound for L.A. but was re-routed to Bergstrom International Airport in Austin for an emergency stop, where Scantlin was booted from the plane.

A rep for the Austin PD tells us, Scantlin was arrested and booked for public intoxication, but he could also later face federal charges of interfering with a flight crew.

FYI -- Scantlin pled "guilty" to felony cocaine possession in July, but the judge agreed to clear his record in 18 months so long as Scantlin obeys all laws ... a condition Scantlin may just have violated. 

Bottom line -- if Scantlin actually did cause a mid-air ruckus he could face prison time for the cocaine charge, as well as for public intoxication and interfering with a flight crew.

Is it any wonder that this scuzzbags wife filed for divorce after two years. You can call her a golddigger but if he's doing drugs and going after flight attendants, can you imagine what she went through?

...damn, this is a good man and it sucks to see him continue to get in trouble.. just in summer '10 I was at a concert of theirs and he was great, leading a train of children on the stage dancing with them, being silly, and just seeming like an overall great guy

Flight attendants have too much power these days.
And....
...they sell booze in airports
...then complain that passengers have been drinking
...then kick them off
Brilliant isn't it, much like allowing pubs and bars to stay open until 2 AM, then complaining that people drive drunk after midnight.
Dogs 'n tails.

I remember the TMZ story about the black actor (from the movie Friday) who wasn't obeying the rules on a plane. He claimed racism. When a white guy doesnt play by the rules on a plane, he accepts his punishment.

New pictures, cool
Let's see...
He's not slouching
His neck is straight
His knees aren't buckled
He's not leaning in any pics
He's not showing any signs of lethargy
He's walking on his own
His face isn't puffy or lazy
His eyes are focused
He isn't stumbling
He walks down the stairs without looking down
He doesn't trip on the stairs
He doesn't fall off the stairs
-
How drunk is he again?
Maybe Wes was rude on the flight, or maybe not, could have been a rude flight attendant.
And maybe Wes was drinking before the flight, but nothing in the pictures indicate he was drunk...was he?
Stay tuned for more details after these messages...
