Puddle of Mudd‘s Wes Scantlin was pulled over in mid-January for signs of intoxication. Unfortunately for the Missouri native, this led police to search him and the car only to find singer in possession of a white powder later determined to be cocaine.
According to E! News, Scantlin made a deal with the L.A. District Attorney whereby avoiding doing time by submitting a plea of guilty to felony possession charges. The DA then dropped two lesser charges of under-the-influence and driving without a license. The “Blurry” singer is now under 18 months’ deferred judgment, which includes a drug counseling program.
To honor his deal with the court, Scantlin must actually attend the counseling program and show proof of enrollment.
Puddle Of Mudd is currently promoting their album of classics covers titled Re: (Disc) Covered.
