Puddle Of Mudd - Puddle Of Mudd's Wes Scantlin Facing Prison After Flight Arrest

Puddle Of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin was arrested at an Austin, Texas, airport on Tuesday (September 4, 2012) after allegedly getting into a drunken argument with a flight attendant while still in the air, reports Tmz.com
Scantlin allegedly got into a verbal argument with the attendant because the flight crew refused to sell him alcohol. The flight was originally bound for Los Angeles, though much to the dismay of passengers, was re-routed to Bergstrom International Airport in Austin for an emergency stop, where Scantlin was booted from the plane and arrested. A police spokesman said the musician was arrested and booked for public intoxication, though he could also face federal charges for interfering with a flight crew. It's not the first time that the Puddle of Mudd star has been in trouble with the law this year, pleading guilty to felony cocaine possession in July, before a judge agreed to clear his record in 18 months so long as he obeyed all laws. The bottom line is that he could now face prison time and will appear in court on October 3, 2012, to learn his fate.
The singer - who recently divorced from his wife of four years - was ranked in the Top 100 Heavy Metal vocalists of all time by Hit Parader.
