PUDDLE OF IDIOT! Wes Scantlin arrested for DWI near Sturgis Motorcycle Rally



Wes Scantlin arrested for DWI in Sturgis

Sturgis, S.D. — Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin faces his second DUI charge in less than two weeks, this time in South Dakota near the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

A state Highway Patrol trooper pulled Scantlin over early Wednesday for a traffic violation east of Sturgis. The rock band has had concerts in the area while the rally takes place.

The 43-year-old musician has been charged in Meade County for DUI and possession of up to two ounces of marijuana. Scantlin’s ticket says he declined a blood alcohol content test after being pulled over in a minivan. He posted bail.

Scantlin was charged in Minnesota in late July with drunken driving and fleeing police after a chase that reached speeds of about 100 mph.

As of Wednesday the South Dakota State Patrol had made 134 DUI arrests in the Sturgis rally area.
