Puddle of Mudd Singer Arrested


After Fight on Flight

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

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.

Saw him last Frisday opening for Buckcherry. The guy was wasted. Total junkie and he deserves to be in jail. He harassed the only black girl in the front row. Made her cry. Walked off stage because his mic was too low. Left his band out to dry. Then played rest of show with back to audience. Total racist junkie a-hole.

Maybe he's the one, maybe he's the one who is the scizophrenic psyco, yeah.

While he drifts and dies, yeah.

Why not use a taser or stun gun instead of an emergency stop? So tired of 'celebs on planes'.

You can't get quite that drunk on a plane. I'll bet he was already drunk before he boarded, then was trying to maintain his alcohol high and it wasn't working and he got nasty. Too bad he didn't get taken down and hog tied.

I was at his concert last night, and he was cracking open a beer right on stage, I am guessing he probably had more before and after the show.

Wes is a personal friend of mine. It's so sad to see so many negative people and negative comments out there. Do I know the whole story? No. Do you know the whole story? No. There are two sides to every story. Not everyone is going to hear his side. As a society, we really should all learn how to be less judgmental and not to believe everything we hear just because it is on the "news".

I was on this flight and he was sitting right behind me. He's literally the worst person of all time. I got a good video of him getting taken off in cuffs though!
