Wes Scantlin

Arrested Again

EXCLUSIVE

Puddle of Mudd
singer Wes Scantlin is keeping his lawyer busy ... because TMZ has learned, he just got arrested AGAIN last night ... stemming from an issue with his cocaine case.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, Scantlin was pulled over in Hollywood around 11:30pm Tuesday night for speeding ... and when police ran his info, they discovered two warrants out for his arrest.

Scantlin was arrested on the scene and taken to a nearby police station, where he was booked. He was released a few hours later on $11,176 bail.

We're told the warrants stemmed from two separate cases -- one for driving on a suspended license and one for his recent cocaine bust. It's unclear what triggered the warrants ... but it's likely he simply blew off court dates.

As we reported, Scantlin was arrested for coke possession in January 2012. He was arrested again in September at an airport in Austin, TX, after allegedly becoming drunkenly combative with a flight attendant. The airport case was dropped.

Wesley's attorney had no comment.

Wait.. He had taken the time to clear up his license issue, so he was no longer driving on a suspended license, and yet he blew off a warrant? That is seriously doubtful.

Sounds more like he was let off the hook for a very serious second offense fo driving with a suspended license. I don't think this story is complete.

How come the 12-Step religious AA/NA cult's "HIGHER POWER" didn't SAVE HIM; isn't that the reason for conjuring-up a make-believe "HIGHER POWER" in the first place?

Hey TMZ why nothing on Benghazi and the failures, lies, cover ups of Obama and Hillary? When the Red Phone rings at 3 AM, Obama sleeps and Hillary won’t answer!
