Puddle Of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has become a wanted man in Denver, Colorado after failing to appear in court following an airport arrest last month (Jan15).

The rocker was taken into custody for trespassing at Denver International Airport on 16 January (15), after he was caught riding on a baggage carousel in a restricted area of the terminal.

He was released on bail after several hours behind bars and ordered to answer the charge in court at a later date.

However, Scantlin missed the February (15) hearing and a warrant has since been issued for his arrest.

Public records reveal the 42 year old was already a wanted man in Denver, following a 2006 bust for speeding and driving without a licence.

Scantlin, who has yet to comment on his latest legal woes, has suffered numerous personal problems in recent years, including losing his home to foreclosure.

The January airport arrest made the singer late for the band's scheduled gig at Casselmans Bar & Venue Denver, and show promoters at Rock Panther Presents subsequently apologised to ticketholders, insisting they will "never" book Puddle of Mudd for any event again.

The group has no current tour plans to return to Colorado.
