Bomb Squad Called To Puddle Of Mudd Lead Singer’s House After He Rigged Fake Explosives To His Car Like A Normal Person

Guys, it may be time to take that Puddle of Mudd poster off your wall. Wes Scantlin is back at it with the psycho shit.

According to TMZ, the 44-year-old Scantlin got so infuriated after his car was broken into multiple times in his West Hollywood driveway that he decided to whittle together a little street justice, or something. In an attempt to deter potential thieves, Scantlin MacGyver-ed together a “homemade car alarm,” made up of a radio placed under one car with wires leading to the motor and a second vehicle with wires leading from the door to the gas tank.

But his plan blew up in his face, as a neighbor who witnessed Scantlin’s plan called the police. Within minutes, the bomb squad showed up and evacuated 4 surrounding buildings in the WeHo neighborhood. Nice.

For those who have been following Scantlin’s antics this past year, a fake car bomb contraption is on par with his perpetual downward spiral. It almost feels…right.

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 in April when he bragged about being on crack on stage, causing his band members to walk off stage in protest. A mere 30 days later, Scantlin was put into cuffs immediately after a show in Hermosa Beach, CA for skipping a court hearing for a vandalism incident.

The dude is really taking this bad boy rocker image to heart. No chance I miss a POM show if he comes to New York. It promises to electric in the best worst way possible.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
