Puddle of Mudd singer Wesley “Wes” Scantlin was recently arrested on Monday after he allegedly showed up at an old home he lost to foreclosure, as per RadarOnline.com.
Wes Scantlin was arrested
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Information Center indicate that the 50-year-old musician was arrested in Hollywood at around 11:00 a.m. and was taken to jail on a misdemeanor trespassing charge. Although Wes was initially held on a $1,000 bond, he was released on his own recognizance at 2:26 p.m.
According to RadarOnline.com, the arrest came after a woman on TikTok claimed “a famous rock singer” showed up to her Hollywood Hills home and refused to leave. In the video she posted to the platform, she said that the man “camped outside” and threatened her maid and was eventually arrested because he had “an active order against him.”
The video allegedly shows the man outside the home Scantlin purchased in 2005 for $1.7 million. After Scantlin lost the estate to foreclosure a decade later, he was charged with vandalism and trespassing after breaking into the property.
In that January 2016 incident, Scantlin allegedly attempted to get in through a window, and when that failed, he later called a locksmith to change the locks. At the time, Scantlin also ripped an alarm system out of a wall, and caused other damage to a garage door and plumbing. The damage to the home totaled nearly $7,000.
Scantlin’s latest arrest comes a little over a year after he made headlines when he walked offstage midconcert at the EPIC Event Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin after complaining about the venue’s lights.
Puddle of Mudd’s latest album, “Welcome To Galvania”, was released in 2019 via Pavement Entertainment.
