TMZ reported that Scott Weiland (ex-Stone Temple Pilots, ex-Velvet Revolver) had been arrested for possessing Meth and trying to steal some razor blades. Later, Weiland posted a video, on his Facebook, from the studio saying that TMZ were lying and that they would be hearing from his lawyers. TMZ have since retracted their statements, saying that the person arrested wasn’t really Weiland.
Here is TMZ’s latest statement:
“L.A. County Sheriffs are now confirming the famous Scott Weiland is NOT in custody … and have launched an investigation to find out who exactly they have locked up.
This story is unbelievable — Sheriffs tell us they believe a Scott Weiland impersonator is currently behind bars … and claim he looks identical to the singer … including his trademark red hair.
We’re told once TMZ called cops after the real Scott posted online video calling BS on his arrest — they went and confronted the unknown man and established he was a knockoff.
The sheriffs — who are in charge of the jail — claim the Beverly Hills PD made the arrest and ID’d the guy as the former Stone Temple Pilot Scott Weiland. Pseudo Scott was processed and has been in jail since July 26th.”
So there you have it, there has been a lot of drama, but Scott Weiland is a free man.
