Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin arrested backstage

If you’re wanted by the law, it’s probably not a good idea to parade around onstage, that is if you don’t want to get caught. Then again, it’s better just not to be wanted by the law — but for Wes Scantlin, there was no putting that toothpaste back in the tube.

According to TMZ, the Puddle of Mudd frontman performed Saturday night at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, Calif., but the concert did not have a happy ending — or even time for an encore.

The second Scantlin walked off stage, bail bondsmen and cops nabbed him for skipping a court hearing in a vandalism case — twice.

Scantlin is accused of trashing a house earlier this year. This time, the judge increased Scantlin’s bail to $250,000, and he was still in custody as of this writing.
