Puddle of Mudd's Wes Scantlin Arrested for Domestic Abuse: Report

Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has reportedly been arrested on domestic abuse charges.

Police were called to a business in West Hollywood on Monday afternoon, according to TMZ, after Scantlin apparently dragged his ex-wife and then pulled her by the arm or the shirt.

Officers then spoke with witnesses and the victim before arresting Scantlin for domestic violence. Unnamed sources who spoke to TMZ said Scantlin was “very mouthy” during the incident. Scantlin was taken into custody with bail set at $20,000.

The rocker’s latest misdeed comes on the heels of his May 7 arrest for warrants stemming from a June 2012 guilty plea to cocaine possession.

Last September, he was arrested in Texas and charged after being removed from a cross-country flight. On that occasion, he was charged with public intoxication -- a Class C misdemeanor, similar to a parking citation.

Back in March 2002, when Puddle of Mudd was still in the afterglow of their biggest hit album "Come Clean," Scantlin was arrested on domestic abuse charges.

Scantlin and the rest of the group released "re:(disc)overed," a covers album, in August 2011.
