Scott Weiland Arrested
Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland has been arrested for DUI.
Failing sobriety tests after crashing his car on Nov. 11 in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, Weiland, 40, was arrested for DUI, according to a California Highway Patrol news release. The accident was a "non-injury traffic collision," said authorities.
The musician was booked at the Van Nuys jail and refused to take a blood or urine test, according to the CHP. He posted $40,000 bail and is due in court on Dec. 13.
The singer has yet to be formally charged by the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.
The former Stone Temple Pilots singer has run afoul of the law numerous times over the years. He was jailed for drug offenses in the 1990s and was arrested on domestic-violence charges in 2001.
Earlier this year, Weiland's wife Mary was arrested and booked for investigation of felony arson vandalism after allegedly setting fire to some of husband's clothes.
In July, Weiland claimed he was past his troubles, saying, "There's definitely a Cleaver sense about our household."
