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.
