Puddle of Mudd lead singer West Scantlin continues to redefine rock bottom.
In January of this year, Scantlin was arrested for breaking into his Hollywood home (which he lost to foreclosure) and vandalizing it with a HATCHET. The very next month, he went straight up diabolical on stage at his concert, accusing an audience member of stealing said home, before walking off stage. But all of that pales in comparison to the incident last month when he bragged about being on crack on stage, causing his band members to walk off stage in protest.
The 43-year-old continues to spiral downward, as he was put into cuffs immediately after a show in Hermosa Beach, CA on Saturday night.
According to TMZ, the reason for the arrest was due to Scantlin skipping a court hearing for the vandalism incident of the house which he lost to foreclosure after trashing it easier this year.
This marks the second time he was a no-show to court, which prompted the judge to up the bail to $250k.
Check out the pathetic scene below.

Scantlin is reportedly still sitting in jail as he was unable to make bail. Go figure.
Moral of the story: If you’re going to skip court (twice), you may not be a performer whose exact schedule is posted on the goddamn internet. Food for thought.
