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.
