PUDDLE OF MUDD Singer Arrested After Fighting A Flight Attendant; Incident Causes Emergency Landing!
According to TMZ.com, PUDDLE OF MUDD singer Wes Scantlin was arrested earlier today at an Austin, Texas airport for allegedly becoming drunkenly combative with a flight attendant while in the air -- a rep for the Austin PD told TMZ.
According to the Austin PD, Scantlin got into a verbal argument with a flight attendant over alcohol. It's unclear exactly what provoked the argument, but a source with airport security says Scantlin was upset because the flight crew wouldn't sell him booze.
Scantlin's flight was originally bound for Los Angeles but was re-routed to Bergstrom International Airport in Austin for an emergency stop, where Scantlin was booted from the plane.
A rep for the Austin PD tells us, Scantlin was arrested and booked for public intoxication, but he could also later face federal charges of interfering with a flight crew. What an idiot!
FYI -- Scantlin pled "guilty" to felony cocaine possession in July, but the judge agreed to clear his record in 18 months so long as Scantlin obeys all laws... a condition Scantlin may just have violated. Again, what an idiot!
