Puddle Of Mudd Singer

Stranded After Arrest ...

Rescued By A Fan

9/8/2012 1:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin bailed out of jail after his crazy plane arrest ... he was stranded with no useable phone and nowhere to go ... until a fan drove by and saved his butt.

TMZ spoke with a guy named Carl Fant -- who says he saw Wes leaving the jail in Austin, Texas on Wednesday and recognized him as the famous POM singer.

Fant tells us ... Scantlin looked like he needed some help, "He wasn't sure where to go and his phone was dead." Carl says he offered up his own cellphone so the singer could call his assistant in L.A.

The good deeds didn't stop there ... Carl took Scantlin to get some grub, find a hotel to crash in and then afterwards took him sightseeing, which turned into "a nice, sober night" on the town.

So why help a guy who had just been arrested for allegedly being an in-flight drunken menace?

Carl says, "I got laid off back in May ... so I know what it's like to have a bad day and need a little assistance."

Carl ... gives us hope.

So no one in his circle knew he was in jail? LOL. Obviously no one cared.

Good on the dude for helping him though. Hope Wes does something nice for him.

His fan Carl Flant wouldn't be a fan if he were on that plane & was held up for hours because of Mudd boy.

Do any of you know Wes personally? Probably not. Wes is a great person. Yes he is fighting some demons right now but it doesn't make him a bad person. Most of you need to look at yourself before bashing someone you don't know because I'm sure you are perfect.

Cool on Carl, I would have picked up Wes too, he's a nice guy, he may be going through a couple issues lately, but he's not hurting others, not murdering anyone, not showing any kind of inhumane the most he may be hurting himself a bit, and some of us would love to see the guy pull through it...he's still the same Wes we remember from the "Blurry" song and video who wanted to be a good dad and who cares about others, just maybe isn't caring about himself enough at the moment, but most of us have been there done that when life acts like a 2x4 and knocks us around..tomorrow's a new day and with plenty of opportunity to get through the tough times and move forward, I'm sure he will
