Puddle of Mudd

Wes Scantlin Goes Ballistic

In Mic-Tossing Meltdown!

4/17/2014 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

041714_puddle_of_mudd_launch_v2Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin went absolutely CRAZY during a show Wednesday night ... throwing his microphone into the crowd during a ridiculous on-stage meltdown.

It's unclear what caused Scantlin to lose it during the Dallas show (some reports say fans were upset because it appeared he was lip-syncing) but it was epic.

Scantlin's mic tossing might have injured a fan -- we're told paramedics were called to tend to an injured concertgoer. Medics won't say what the caused the injury, but TMZ spoke to several witnesses who pinned it on the flying mic.

TMZ reached out to Scantlin ... so far, no word back.

This man was once a talented musician. He is obviously in need of help. It's like watching a train wreck. It is very sad.

In typical douchebag fashion, he takes his shirt off for no reason.

I really wish he'd get some help before he does something he can't undo.

I've met him before and he's actually a very talented guy. Given his past, I think it's safe to say that drugs are playing a large role in his behavior. I hope he gets the help he needs before it's too late.

What happened, was he was too drunk/****ed up to barely stand/perform...So he was lip syncing through the whole set...Very poorly doing it...From what people say, he was so messed up people up front would have to keep him from falling over when he leaned over the edge of the stage...People were upset about him being so ****ed up and his bad stage presence. He was tossing beer and bottles at fans..As well as the mic....Flipping fans off and telling them **** them the whole time...Then ended it off with a tirade saying to **** the fans there, **** the owner and the club, **** the local bands supporting them and **** the city itself.
