Wes Scantlin: Busted for Trashing the House ... He USED to Own!


Wes Scantlin tried to go home -- to the house he lost in foreclosure last year -- and got arrested for destroying a bunch of property in the place.

TMZ got this video of the Puddle of Mudd frontman getting hauled off in cuffs from the Hollywood Hills pad on Saturday. You can hear the clearly confused singer pleading to the LAPD officers, "C'mon, this is my house, man!" 

Sources connected to the case tell us Scantlin appears to have used a hatchet to smash a window. Also, he allegedly trashed audio electronics, surveillance cameras and an alarm system while inside the home early Saturday.

Scantlin was booked for vandalism, and 2 other people with him for trespassing. The singer was released after posting $20,000 bail. This bust comes on the heels of his Dec. 26 arrest for drugs.

2 weeks NOT arrested is a decent run for Scantlin, who's quickly challenging DMX.
