Scott Weiland Doppelganger

On a purely visual level ... it's understandable how Beverly Hills cops got fooled by the guy claiming to be former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland

Jason Michael Hurley -- the guy who claimed he was Scott after getting busted for stealing razors and meth possession -- is the singer's spitting image.

In fact ... before his arrest he was boasting his attempt to create a cover band called Stone Tempered Pilots.

As we reported ... cops took Hurley at his word that he was Weiland ... and he was so convincing jailers put him in the celeb wing for 3 weeks and never had a doubt he was the famous singer.

Your article last night was meant to "stick it to" Scott Weiland (the real one). All the nasty comments, libel and slander included ,was prompted by your nasty mean-spirited site. You didn't apologize, and even tried to make it look like you were the "heroes" for calling the cops to figure out the mess. You failed on this one TMZ, hope you get sued. Stick to the K family you irresponsible jerks.

What makes me mad is you're saying the jail has a famous cell??? So not only do famous people never get in trouble but the few days they might get they actually have it easy?? And these two men could not look any more different.

Hasn't Scott Weiland been arrested before? Wouldn't they have his fingerprints in the system as well as do***entation of his tattoos..etc...how could the police possibly think it was him? Something is off here....
