Puddle of Mudd Singer Wes Scantlin -- Busted for DWI ... FOUR TIMES THE LEGAL LIMIT!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin has been arrested yet again ... this time in Minnesota for allegedly driving while intoxicated -- a whopping four times the legal limit -- and leading cops on a 100 MPH chase.  

According to the Renville County Sheriff’s Department, Scantlin was initially spotted speeding and led the arresting officer on a high-speed pursuit … with speeds reaching approximately 100 MPH.

The arresting officer said in his report … when he finally pulled Scantlin over, he was slurring his words and smelled of alcohol. 

The officer says he then administered a preliminary breathalyzer test and Scantlin blew a .310 … a whopping FOUR TIMES the legal limit. 

He was eventually charged with DWI and fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle. Since Scantlin refused to submit to further testing, he was charged for that too.

Scantlin had prior arrests for drug possession in 2012 and domestic violence in 2013.
