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.

It could have been worse for the passengers. Imagine if they had to listen Puddle of Muddss songs during the flight.

This is what happens when you you have a dry flight for 6hrs and you're a rocker.

I wish they wouldn't serve booze on planes. Young children don't need to witness things like this.

Way to ruin the day of 400 people 'cause you wanted a freaking drink of booze. Totally selfish, douchey thing to do.

Yeah, yeah, whatever! I'm with you, Scantlin. When you're the front man...Gibson guitars for the solo.

The flight attendants should have put a parachute on him and throw his as* off the plane. I bet if they did that then nobody would ever act up on a plane again.
