Scott Weiland arrested for DUI

Scott Weiland has been arrested for DUI. The Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer was driving on an L.A. highway around 6:15 PM on November 21 when he crashed his car. While the California Highway Patrol was investigating the non-injury wreck, they noticed Weiland appeared to be impaired. According to the police report Weiland failed sobriety tests and refused to take a blood or urine test. He was booked for "driving under the influence of a drug. "He was released on $40,000 bail and will be back in court on December 13. Weiland is no stranger to run-ins with the law. He was busted for buying crack in 1995, domestic violence in 2001, DUI on his birthday in 2003, and allegedly trashed a hotel room while brawling with his wife. A rep for Weiland said, "Scott Weiland was recently involved in a minor accident in Los Angeles and denies he was driving under the influence. He voluntarily took a breathalyzer test which the defense believes registers well within the legal limit. He is anxious to get to court on December 13 and clear this matter up."
