Puddle Of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin has continued his recent losing streak by getting arrested on Monday (September 4th) after an argument on a plane with a flight attendant led to an emergency landing. According to TMZ, Scantlin allegedly became aggressive after the attendant refused to sell him alcohol, and his behavior forced the Los Angeles-bound plane to make an unplanned stop at Bergstrom International Airport in Austin, Texas, where Scantlin was booted from the aircraft and placed under arrest by Austin police.

Scantlin was booked for public intoxication, but could also face federal charges of interfering with a flight crew.

Here's Scantlin's other problem: the musician pleaded guilty to a felony cocaine possession charge in July, but the judge agreed to clear his record as long as he did not break any further laws for 18 months -- a deal which Scantlin might have now violated and which could lead to more prison time for the drug charge.

Scantlin was arrested on the possession charge last January, when he was pulled over by police in the Culver City section of Los Angeles.

He also appeared in court in June to finalize his divorce from wife Jessica Nicole Smith, agreeing to pay $2,500 a month in alimony. It was also revealed late last year that Scantlin owed more than $60,000 in back taxes.
