Scott Weiland Doppelganger

Officially No Longer

Scott Weiland

EXCLUSIVE

Scott Weiland Look AlikeJason Michael Hurley won't be dragging Scott Weiland's name through the mud any longer, because from this point forward ... he'll be going through the legal system using his real name.

As TMZ first reported, the Beverly Hills PD announced last week they arrested the former Stone Temple Pilots front man for burglary and meth possession ... problem was ... it wasn't actually him.  A look-alike with a Stone Temple Pilots cover band in the works claimed to be Weiland and cops never checked it out.

Hurley was back in court Tuesday where he pled not guilty and was then sent back to jail ... where he's been for a month.

Didn't they run fingerprints when they first booked this guy. They both have criminal records, so their prints were available.

No resemblance, TMZ. Even Stevie Wonder could see that. Pay off Scott and learn to spell Friggin'.

Seriously sounds like a story out of 'Police Academy' This police dept is obviously full of lesser intelligent people.

Did anyone look at this guy's mugshot before you posted that first story, or did the 20 year old interns post it without someone over 30 confirming whether or not it was Scott Weiland. TMZ will post crap like this but keeps real, juicy stories about celebs in the TMZ vault in exchange for access.

Still doesn't look like him TMZ. Nice try tho. Check your story first next time. If you had even looked at his mug shot once you would of known it wasn't him. Due diligence is important in "news" reporting.
