Puddle of Mudd Singer Wes Scantlin Accused of DUI
Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin faces his second DUI charge in less than two weeks, this time in South Dakota near the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
A state Highway Patrol trooper pulled Scantlin over early Wednesday for a traffic violation east of Sturgis. The rock group has had concerts in the area.
The 43-year-old music star has been charged in Meade County for DUI and possession of up to two ounces of marijuana.
Scantlin's ticket says he declined a blood alcohol content test after being pulled over in a minivan. He posted bail.
Scantlin was charged in Minnesota in July with drunken driving and fleeing police after a chase that reached speeds of about 100 mph.
As of Wednesday, the patrol had made 134 DUI arrests in the Sturgis rally area.
