Cops: Rocker arrested in DWI: Puddle Of Mudd Singer DWI, The lead singer of Puddle of Mudd was arrested and charged with DWI after leading a peace officer on a 100 mph chase early Sunday morning.
According to Renville County arrest records, Wesley Scantlin was booked in the Renville County Jail at 4:47 a.m. Sunday. A copy of the criminal complaint says he was charged with one felony count of fleeing a peace office in a motor vehicle, a gross misdemeanor charge of refusing a DWI test and a misdemeanor DWI charge.
A statement from the peace officer says Scantlin was driving approximately 80 mph on eastbound Highway 212 near Bird Island before turning around and reaching speeds of approximately 100 mph on westbound Highway 212 before eventually pulling off to the side of the road.
A preliminary breath test resulted in a 0.31 breath alcohol concentration, nearly four times the legal limit.
Assistant County Attorney Glen Jacobsen told BringMeTheNews that Scantlin is expected to post bail ($50,000) and be released Monday afternoon.
Puddle of Mudd played at Halfway Jam in Royalton, Minnesota, on Friday for the annual rock concert that describes itself as “Halfway between Heaven and the Twin Cities.”

This is the latest in a series of arrests for Scantlin.
In the summer of 2013, TMZ reported he was arrested for felony vandalism in Los Angeles after taking a “buzzsaw” and a sledgehammer to his neighbor’s property. He’s also been arrested twice this year at airports: once in Denver for riding a baggage carousel, according to ABC Denver, and again in Milwaukee for disorderly conduct, per WTMJ.
