Police Make Announcement On Investigation Of Scott Weiland’s Bandmate


Bloomington police said they found a small amount of cocaine in Scott Weiland’s bedroom and elsewhere on his tour bus on the night of his death on December 3rd. They briefly held Wildabouts bassist Tommy Black, who was traveling with Weiland.

Bloomington Deputy Police Chief Mike Hartley has announced that authorities won’t pursue a drug charge against him because it would be too difficult to prove the drugs belonged to him.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner in Minneapolis reported yesterday that Scott Weiland overdosed on cocaine, methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA; also known as “sally” or “the love drug,” and chemically related to the drug ecstasy) and ethanol. The report also indicates heart disease and asthma were “significant” conditions. The test results also revealed Scott’s “multi-substance dependence” was a factor. TMZ also are reporting that alcohol played a role.

Police also found Xanax, sleeping pills, Viagra, and meds to treat bipolar disorder on the bus — but those drugs did not play a factor in his death.


Wildabouts guitarist Nick Maybury has posted more comments on his bandmate Scott Weiland’s tragic death in the last few days on Twitter in response to mourning fans.

Maybury tweeted, “I miss him too I couldn’t speak for a week in a zone of loss and heartache bummed wel never play music.”

He also said, “Been a tough time indeed – grateful to be apart of something this legendary – what an awesome artist ”

Maybury and Wildabouts drummer Joey Castillo also showed moral support for each other last week on Instagram, with Castillo commenting a tribute post with ‘Love you Bro⚡️⚡️RIP Scotty.’

Maybury responded, ‘Love you too man @theejoeyc can barley talk.’
