The Puddle Of Mudd frontman was pulled over in Renville County early on Sunday (26Jul15), and after refusing to take a breathalyser test, he attempted to speed off in his car.

He didn't get far and cops subsequently took him into custody for DWI and refusal to perform a field sobriety test, reports

Scantlin has been in and out of trouble with authorities since 2012, when he was arrested for drug possession. He was also booked for a domestic violence charge in 2013, and earlier this year (15), he fell foul of airport police in Denver, Colorado after allegedly taking a "joy ride" on the baggage carousel.

He failed to appear before a judge to face the accusations of misdemeanour trespassing and was arrested in Milwaukee in April (15) in relation to the court no-show. A second arrest notice was issued in May (15) after skipping another court date in Denver, where he is also wanted on an outstanding warrant from 2006 for speeding and driving without a licence.
