Scott Weiland was arrested for driving under the influence of a drug after he crashed his car last month but his publicist says it was a minor accident and denies the allegations.
The Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer, who has a history of drug problems, was driving on a state highway Nov. 21 when he had the accident.
The singer was arrested after an officer noticed he showed “signs of impairment” and failed field sobriety tests, according to a police report obtained by the celebrity site TMZ.com.
Weiland, 40, was taken to a Van Nuys, Calif., jail where he refused to take a blood or urine test, according to the police report. He was booked and released on $40,000 US bail.
Weiland’s publicist said that Weiland was involved in a “minor accident,” but denies he was driving under the influence.
