‘Puddle of Mudd’ Singer Wes Scantlin — Charges Dropped from JetBlue Arrest

EXCLUSIVE 1120-wew-scantlin-tmzPuddle of Mudd” singer Wes Scantlin just dodged a stint in prison because charges against him for an alleged drunken brawl on a JetBlue flight … have been dropped!

our sources broke the story … Scantlin was arrested in Austin, TX back in September, after he allegedly got into a booze-fueled argument with a flight attendant. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing and Scantlin was charged with public intoxication.

Scantlin was adamant he did nothing wrong — and earlier this week he was vindicated when a judge dismissed the charges due to “insufficient evidence”. 

Scantlin struck a plea deal for cocaine possession in July — and was ordered to obey all laws for 18 months … or he could face a prison sentence.

Calls to Scantlin”s people weren”t returned.
